    OAN has been a leading purveyor of Trump propaganda,
    anti-vax propaganda, & Covid 19 conspiracy theories.
    I've found it fascinating to watch their news coverage.

    DirecTV loss could cripple rightwing One America News
    Excerpted...
    WASHINGTON, Jan 15 (Reuters) - The largest satellite provider in the United States said late Friday it will drop One America News, a move that could financially cripple the rightwing TV network known for fueling conspiracy theories about the 2020 election.

    The announcement by DirecTV, which is 70% owned by AT&T, comes three months after a Reuters investigation revealed that OAN's founder testified that AT&T inspired him to create the network. Court testimony also showed that OAN receives nearly all of its revenue from DirecTV.

    For the sake of the country, I hope OAN fades into
    oblivion (due to private action rather than governmental).

    The AT&T connection gives a serious propaganda boost to anti-capitalists.

    Everything is bias confirmation to anti-capitalists.
    I'll bet they even see OAN's demise as proof of
    the need for government to preserve their freedom
    of speech.

    But people like their conspiracies and propaganda!

    On the other hand who really cares?

    Like Direct TV is the epitome of stellar media anyways.

    At least it wasn't Sprint. Goodness knows what kind of news network might have resulted.

    FOX is facing lawsuits from Dominion with a potential 1.6 billion penalty. What is odd is that Carlson and Hannity are still going strong with disinformation about important issues in the nation.

    How many cucks could Tucker Carlson tuck if Tucker Carlson could tuck cucks?

    (I prefer the "Liar Tuck" moniker for him.)

    They can say whatever they want.

    It's your responsibility to decide for yourself.

    FOX has a terrible reputation as a media outlet. I've seen FOX and I have decided it is trash.

    And there are still libel and slander laws that people have to be accountable for if they cross lines, especially if they supposedly have a public trust to report news.

    Complex question there.
    Can you make it more specific?

    I agree actually, but fox has a middle reputation.

    It's not always good reporting, but it's not always that bad either.
