Dick Morris to Newsmax: DirecTV's Decision 'Purely' Political

By    |   Monday, 30 January 2023 04:42 PM EST

DirecTV's decision to drop Newsmax was "purely" political, said Dick Morris, author and former advisor to Presidents Bill Clinton and Donald Trump, on Monday.

Appearing on "American Agenda," Morris pushed back against the narrative that the satellite network dropping Newsmax was a business decision.

"President Trump launches his campaign on Sunday, and the Tuesday before midnight, [DirecTV takes] Newsmax off the air. This is obviously political, and to dress it up as a commercial decision, it's ludicrous. The issue here is purely and completely political, and they're trying to disguise it by saying that the pennies, one way or another are making all the difference, and that's just not true," Morris said.

During his appearance, Morris pointed out that DirecTV dropped Newsmax roughly a week ahead of former President Donald Trump truly kicking off his 2024 campaign. But it is not clear what Morris meant by Trump launching his campaign on "Sunday." On Saturday, according to the Associated Press, Trump held campaign rallies in New Hampshire and South Carolina.

Newsmax is one of the few networks regularly covering Trump's rallies and, now, campaign speeches. Trump officially announced his 2024 campaign at his home in Mar-a-Lago roughly a week after the 2022 midterms in November.

Actions to Take Now

1. DirecTV customers: Call them toll free at 877-763-9762 and demand they bring NEWSMAX back on air. President Trump urges you CANCEL!

  • Important: If DirecTV tells you we’re still negotiating, that is a lie! They have told NEWSMAX we will never be on a regular cable channel. DirecTV also replaced NEWSMAX with a channel that has no news and no ratings. Also, NEWSMAX's livestream is ending soon on other platforms, so unless you get it on DirecTV you will have to cancel their service.

2. AT&T customers: Call toll free at 888-855-2338, for any of their cellphones, wireless products, or services, and demand they end their censorship of NEWSMAX. President Trump has urged you to cancel their services.

3. Call your congressman or senator at 202-224-3121 and demand they stop AT&T/DirecTV’s censorship of NEWSMAX — ask them to give you a date on the hearings!
