W.Va. AG Morrisey to Newsmax: Trying to 'Squelch Dissent' Won't End Well

By    |   Monday, 30 January 2023 12:53 PM EST

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is calling out DirecTV's decision to remove Newsmax from its platform as "corporate censorship."

In an interview on Newsmax's "National Report," Morrisey explained his hard-hitting letter questioning DirecTV's controversial move.

"The last thing our country needs right now is corporate censorship of conservative voices at the behest of members of Congress and others seeking to cut off debate by limiting the reach of those that disagree with them," Morrisey's letter stated.

Morrisey said his thoughts behind the letter took shape years ago.

"I've been concerned about this issue for a number of years," he said. "I thought it was wrong then. It was really the beginning of an effort by a lot of liberals in this country to squelch conservative voices."

According to Morrisey, "America does best when it has a diversified array of views.

"You want to have conservative outlets, liberal outlets," he said, adding: "When you try to squelch dissent it doesn't turn out well."

"It's just wrong to silence a conservative perspective," he asserted, adding "going after conservative platforms ... has to change. It's important that people take a stand."

Morrisey urged that viewers use their clout with their "voices and subscriptions."

And he said as a law enforcement official, "you want to make sure all laws are being followed … look for evidence."

"I want to keep looking at this — I'm not satisfied with what I've heard from these companies," he warned.

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!
