Donald Trump is still a force in American political life.
Liberals hate that fact.
And now Donald Trump said the one word that will drive CNN crazy.
Joe Biden recently demanded that cable companies and Silicon Valley crack down on critics of his administration and censor conservative speech.
“I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets — please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows. It has to stop,” Biden declared in a White House speech.
DirecTV – owned by AT&T which was the parent company of CNN – responded by dropping One America News from its channel lineup.
“We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,”DirecTV’s statementread.
CNN – which led the crusade to suppress conservative media – cheered the development.
At a rally in Arizona, Donald Trump struck back.
Trump told the crowd that woke corporate executives caved to the left’s demands for censorship and silenced conservative media.
“The woke executives, I don’t know what the hell they’re doing,” Trump declared. “They have so much debt [DirecTV parent company]. AT&T is a company that is in serious trouble. And they need AT&T, and AT&T is saying that they may no longer agree to carry this network that’s doing very well. You know why? Because people told them not to do it.”
Trump told the crowd the only answer was to hit back where these companies feared the most – in their bank account.
“So maybe what we should do is not use AT&T,” Trump suggested.
Trump praised One America News as a “great network” and place viewers tuned into because “you really get the truth.”
One America News takes in 90 percent of its revenue from AT&T platforms so DirecTV dropping the conservative news channel could spell its demise.
During his speech, Trump revealed that One America News’s founders – Charles and Robert Herring – told Trump they did not want him to tell his supporters to boycott AT&T in return for DirecTV dropping their channel.
“They said please don’t mention the word boycott, so i won’t mention it,” Trump told the crowd. “I’m not going to use the word boycott. I will not say boycott AT&T! Because I promised Robert I will not do it! So I will not say boycott them!”
CNN began demanding cable companies censor Fox News, Newsmax and One America News following the events of January 6.
Those calls only escalated once the COVID vaccine became widely available.
In both cases CNN – and now Joe Biden – demanded that any information or question that undermines the Democrat Party’s narrative is now “misinformation” and that Big Tech and cable operators should step in to censor any conservative dissent.
