Conservative One America News Network Sues DirecTV After Channel Dropped

Some of these allegations are downright despicable.

With the mainstream media having shown its bias toward liberalism without fail over the course of the last several decades, there are fears among conservative politicians and strategists that right-wing punditry is on the decline.

Sure, Tucker Carlson has the number-one rated television program in America right now, but he is just about the only mainstream conservative anchor in prime-time for most Americans.  Other similarly right-leaning projects exist, but they’ve been smothered, throttled, chewed up, and spit out by the well-greased machine of the infotainment industry.

Just weeks ago, the One America News network got a brutal dose of the prejudiced reality when DirecTV arbitrarily decided to drop the channel.

Now, OAN is seeking to force the cable provider to explain themselves in court.

Herring Networks, which owns OAN, filed a 36-page lawsuit in the Superior Court of California in San Diego this week.

The lawsuit targets DirecTV, AT&T and company board chair William Kennard.

There are several complaints being addressed in the suit.

In its lawsuit, Herring Networks accused the above-mentioned parties of breach of contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, intentional interference with business expectancy and violation of California’s Unfair Competition Law.

“This is an action to redress the unchecked influence and power that Defendants have wielded in an attempt to unlawfully destroy an independent, family-run business and impede the right of American television viewers to watch the news media channels and programs of their choice,” Herring Networks claimed in the filing.

Also in the lawsuit are claims that some left-leaning organizations had conducted a pressure campaign to have DirecTV take action against OAN, which could make for some very interesting testimony.
