"this is censorship at its best"

Yes. It truly is.
 
2022-01-21 11:47:15 AM  
I'm pretty sure that AT&T despises everyone equally.
 
2022-01-21 11:51:23 AM  
Gosh, I really wonder why such a trash channel like that was kicked off the air.

Makes you go, hmmmmmmmmmmmm.

So... OAN explicitly admitting they couldn't do investigative journalism if their lives depended on it.

This is the AT&T Board of Directors.

I don't think I've ever seen a group of more radicalized individuals who are clearly motivated by one thing and one thing only: An absolute, all-encompassing, unending hatred of white people.

Every rightwinger a liar/conman.  Good thing Republicans are all morons.

It's cool because ATT isn't associated with DTV anymore. Majority stake was sold off and the transition is complete. ATT has deep, deep legal pockets. So I don't think this is a thing OAN thought through.

But then again, they don't think much through.

In a fight between OAN and AT&T, I'd be okay if they both destroyed each other.

"Consequences? We're white people! How DARE they suggest that there are consequences to our actions!"

White people sure have a low bar for what they call racism against them. Not so much against anyone else.

"We just taking that boy out for a drag, like the kids do. No, officer, we just joshing'! Like them chicano boys we sent boys to roust. I mean, you want to call that racism, that's on you, but maybe they shouldn't have been dancing with white women? And them Japs...I mean, we was at war, and their houses were just sittin' there while they was in the camp, you honestly thought we shouldn't take 'em? Not lending to some couples? That's just good business sense. I mean, lookout them. Yeah, they had good credit, but for how long? We have been workin' hard to keep that from happening, but one or two get through every now and then, but we have ways to make sure they don't get uppitty, and we do it for y'all's benefit. You'll see!"

Eh, I'd like to agree, but I fear a world where OAN wins that fight far more.

Gee, isn't it weird how these same fascists insist on letting the private sector flourish without government interference and cry like little babies when the private sector, some publicly owned company, decides that OAN is too terrible to do business with them?

I'm not puzzled at all.

Lee serves on board of directors of Marriott, and Revlon.[7] Lee is also a director of Washington Gas Light Company, WGL Holdings (since 2000) and the Monsanto subsidiary Genuity.[5] In May 2016, Lee was added to the board of directors of Twitter, following an attempt by returning CEO Jack Dorsey to boost diversity across the social media company's board.[8]

2022-01-21 12:27:10 PM  
Every time I try to think of a provider worse than Verizon I think of AT&T.

I would say don't pick sides, but that would technically be picking sides.

OAN:  You were this close to taking down Fox News.  You had the TFG.  You had the racism.  Where did you go wrong, OAN?  Not enough blonde news readers in short skirts?

OAN's tears bring me joy.

Not that I'm giving Dr. AT&Tenstien any slack here.  They created this monster; they don't get any brownie points for destroying it after it's already run amok.

tricycleracer: A satellite TV provider owned by ATT dropped a station funded by ATT?  I'm dizzy.


It also the name of the Streaming TV Service that is being used by ATT to replace their U-VERSE Cable.  No more "cable TV", only Streaming.

The actual Service is pretty good and having OAN as part of the lineup on every package was really the only thing keeping me from canceling U-Verse and moving to the DirecTV Stream service.
 
2022-01-21 12:38:46 PM  
I can't imagine a company able to give less of a shiat than AT&T.
 
2022-01-21 12:39:19 PM  
Uhm, wasn't it AT&T that was the primary funding source for OAN?

This all sounds like theater to obfuscate their role in creating rightwing fake news.

That's a vague statement. They could have hired somebody from New Jersey with a Napoleon COmplex and satisfied that requirement. Maybe you were trying to be funny? If not, that's pretty #SAD of you.

Anyone biatching about "racism against white people" can be safely filed under "useless trash person" and ignored forever.

saying racial slurs against white people

Racial slurs against people of color are OK.  As a matter of fact, please report those as well as we are looking for a potential CEO of OAN.

If you claim that refusing to give a platform to domestic terrorists is being racist against white people, then you're the one calling white people domestic terrorists, not them.

Specifying racial slurs against white people is perhaps being a little too obvious.
