DirecTV drops OAN

And yet I'll bet they're keeping CNN, the greatest purveyors of misinformation and leftist hate on TV.
Apparently leftist support OAN as they do Fox
If only they had supported ''Air America' the same it might still be on the air

Heh. An entire strand FULL of supposed “liberals” cheering this stuff.


I’ve never seen a broadcast of OAN, but you guys had better NEVER refer to yourselves as “liberal” ever again. Illiberal leftists, certainly.
Please explain that opinion. Oann is the Trump Propaganda flagship...Info Wars was his second favorite.

I watched OAN once, only because my father-in-law had it on. Tin Foil hat territory. You'd like it.

If you've never watched OAN, you should take a pass from commenting in this thread.
Nope. I don’t have the right to pass judgment on who gets a voice. No liberal does. I think communists should be able to have their own channel if they want to and can muster the resources. De-platforming and silencing voices indicates weakness, intolerance, and an inherently non-pluralistic impulse befitting extremist fundamentalists. You guys are increasingly the new Ashcrofts.

Hard to believe that there isn’t ONE among you who dissents on the matter. THAT ALONE demonstrates that you’re not independent, free-thinking, question-everything liberals.

At all.

And, because you guys no longer check yourselves in the mirror…ever…there is no argument or appeal that you’d ever hear. Just mow thru. As always.

I know nothing about OAN. I simply don’t favor shutting down voices. Julie’s OP states that OAN pre-dates Trump (not that this is relevant to liberals being open to all voices).

Elimination of competition in the marketplace of news, ideas, philosophy…hardly the stuff of the “liberal”. Quite the opposite, in fact.

Liberals are all about TRUTH and stopping the spread of lies and conspiracies to the gullible. A democracy requires truth to survive.

Authoritarians/fascists are all about spreading propaganda. They're into banning books and rewriting the history of racism in America.
Remember Hitler's MINISTRY OF PROPAGANDA AND PUBLIC ENLIGHTENMENT.

What's a communist?

You are either uninformed or Lying:

The Many Things that Democrats want to Ban (Running List) (metallicman.com)

You are not supporting democracy and there is no truth in Biden and leftist you defend.

You have no idea what “liberals” are about. “Liberals” didn’t accept a universal, singular, absolutist notion of “truth”. Let alone attempt to impose “truth” by silencing/cheering on the silencing of others. That’s the province of more fundamentalism…right?

See what I mean? Of course you don’t - because leftists do not introspect. They don’t check themselves in the mirror.
You just made the point perfectly.

"Can muster the resources"? The question is whether DirecTV should be able to make the business decision not to supply them with resources they can't come up with on their own if that is the best decision for them to make.

Here you are spouting right wing propaganda but you don't know shit about what being a liberal is.

Eh, mr libertarian?

Heh. A timely lecture on capitalism from… nevermind. Try to remember that I was discussing the reflexive, unanimous reaction/cheering of those here who like to call themselves “liberals”. Not a single dissenting view. Not one. As always, the absence of any reflection precludes recognition of what is right there…just as the absence of humility will prevent admitting it.

Illiberal stuff.

Their fictional reporting borders on slander...if Goebels were alive he'd work for OAN.

Shutting down OAN isn't about any requirement to give them resources to promote opposing views. They are an extreme channel for conspiracies appealing to an ever diminishing segment of the right.

Can you go to Fox and demand air time? Of course not. Is that censorship?
