Leading distributors of One America News (OAN) have refused to renew their contract with the conservative network, sparking a celebration of liberals online.
One America News (OAN), a conservative television channel often described as a favorite of former US President Donald Trump, is set to be dropped by its satellite operator following an internal review.
DirecTV, which carries OAN on Channel 347, has told Herring Network, the network’s parent company, that it will not carry OAN or sister entertainment channel AWE after the current contract expires in April.
“Following regular internal review, we have informed Herring Networks that we do not expect to enter into a new contract when our current contract expires.” DirecTV said in a statement to Bloomberg News on Friday.
This decision will undoubtedly be a blow to OAN, which will not be one of the largest satellite TV operators in the United States and will continue to broadcast on other national providers, including Verizon FiOS.
It is not clear why DirecTV is severing its partnership with OAN, and will continue to provide Career Newsmax – another conservative channel described as Trump’s favorite.
Liberal political organizations on Friday celebrated the announcement with the controversial anti-Trump “Lincoln Plan.” Call Cancel “A great victory for democracy.”
