AT&T/DirecTV just pissed off millions of Americans.
Why now, you might ask?
They’re dropping One America News Network (OANN) from their lineup.
I guess OANN was having too big of an impact?
Take a look:
Today I cancelled DirecTv. Customer for 20 years but after they announced they were dropping OANN I'm DONE with them. If you're a Patriot and have AT&T please do the same. We have to stop this B.S.! The rep I spoke to told me several customers were dropping DirecTv. Join us!

Even President Trump weighed in:
President Donald J. Trump:
"If AT&T/DirecTV cancels OAN, I hope that everyone will boycott and cancel DirecTV. It is a very popular channel, far more popular than most would understand, and they are being treated horribly by the Radical Left lunatics running the networks. pic.twitter.com/6aRoZLD3ER

Here is more:
NEW: DirecTV, one of the largest US pay-TV providers, plans to drop OAN. OAN depends heavily on DirecTV, its largest distributor, to reach its audience. The channel is still carried on Verizon FiOS and smaller pay-TV providers.https://t.co/ybh4pwN21G

Here’s what RawStory reported:
One America News, the Trump-loving network that was instrumental in spreading falsehoods about the 2020 presidential election, suffered a major blow on Friday when it was reported that DirecTV will stop carrying it.
As reported by Bloomberg and confirmed by CNN’s Brian Stelter, DirecTV plans to drop OAN from its lineup when its contract expires later this year.
OAN is already in trouble given the defamation lawsuits it’s facing from Dominion Voting Systems for spreading misinformation about the company supposedly rigging the 2020 election for President Joe Biden.
Did this have anything to do with it?

And from Bloomberg:
DirecTV, one of the largest U.S. pay-TV providers, plans to drop One America News Network, dealing a major blow to the conservative channel that’s been criticized for spreading misinformation and had a loyal fan in former President Donald Trump.
The satellite-TV provider has notified OAN’s owner, Herring Networks Inc., that it plans to stop carrying the company’s two channels when their contract expires. Herring Networks also owns AWE, a lifestyle channel that stands for “A Wealth of Entertainment.”
“We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” the company said in an emailed statement to Bloomberg News.
Time to boycott?
Many are calling for one:
Boycott DirecTV – cut them out. Call and drop them. They’ve chosen their side https://t.co/yQEyFbKsoe
