Kentucky GOP Sen. Rand Paul has announced that he’s canceling his DirecTV service after the company said it plans to drop the right-wing One America News (OAN) from its listings.
“Why give money to people who hate us?” Paul tweeted on Monday.
This Friday, DirecTV announced that after a “routine internal review,” the company will not be renewing its contract with the network. Unsurprisingly, the move sparked a wave of pushback from fans of the network.
“The Left’s purge continues: -YouTube demonetizes Dan Bongino. -DirectTV drops One America News. -Twitter suspends Dr. Malone. Who’s next?” Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) tweeted.
“Pretty convenient that this comes within a week after Biden begged companies to silence ‘misinformation’, meaning his opposition,” said Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO).
OAN is among other conservative media outlets that have been sued for defamation for spreading false information about the 2020 election.
