Cancellation of NEWSMAX
There have been notices that DirecTV is threatening to remove NEWSMAX TV from the lineup on channel 349 as early as midnight on Tuesday 1/24/2023. If indeed this will occur it represents a threat to censor conservative news from the cable service.
AT&T continues to own 70% of DirecTV, but added TPG Capital as its partner with a 30% stakeholder in 2021.
TPG, a Texas-based financial firm and hedge fund, is known for its liberal politics. FEC documents show that since 1993, 90% of its donations have gone to Democratic candidates and committees.
Newsmax is one of the most watched cable news channels in America; millions of people turn to Newsmax as a source of trusted information. Now more than ever, the American people need access to a free and fair press. I am sure that DirecTV will claim that removing Newsmax from their lineup of channels was purely a business decision, but that is hard to accept when liberal news channels like Vice Media continue to remain on the air. Vice is a ratings failure for DirecTV, yet they continue to profit from their relationship with DirecTV.
Censoring of conservative views is direct evidence of technocracy interfering with free speech in America.
If , indeed, the removal occurs, it will assuredly cause a migration of conservative viewers away from DirectTv AND AT&T, causing untold losses for those organizations.
Please let your voices be heard because America deserves to hear ALL points of view!
