Sen. Rand Paul Urges Customers to Cancel DirecTV

Having already boycotted DirecTV for canceling OAN one year ago, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is urging his supporters to follow his lead after DirecTV's "censoring" of Newsmax this week.

"I would cancel @DIRECTV for censoring @NEWSMAX but I already canceled them for canceling @OANN," Paul tweeted Thursday. "I guess @DIRECTV doesn't want conservative viewers so maybe we should all just quit their services and go elsewhere."

AT&T DirecTV dropped Newsmax from its channel lineup at midnight on Tuesday. It  claimed the step was a cost-cutting measure over licensing fees demanded by Newsmax. AT&T made a similar claim last year when it deplatformed conservative OAN.

Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy noted that less-successful liberal channels, "even with tiny ratings, get fees" from the satellite service.

Ruddy has called the removal “a blatant act of political censorship.”

DirecTV continues to carry 22 liberal news channels, many with low ratings, and all get paid hefty license fees. Newsmax was seeking a small fee as the nation's fourth highest-rated cable news channel.

Former President Trump earlier this week called AT&T/DirecTV’s canceling of Newsmax "disgusting" and urged supporters to cancel both DirecTV and AT&T services, including wireless and cellphones.
