Playing A Dangerous Game: AT&T Denies Funding OAN. Network Founder Says Otherwise.

A Reuters investigation uncovered who is bankrolling far-right network, One America News. The world’s largest communications company, AT&T.

The report reveals OAN founder and chief executive Robert Herring, Sr., claimed the inspiration to launch the network was the brainchild of some AT&T executives back in 2013.

Court records obtained by Reuters show AT&T was a crucial source of funds flowing into OAN. Ninety percent of OAN’s revenue came from a contract with AT&T-owned television platforms, including satellite broadcaster DirecTV.

The network played a significant role in spreading false information during Trump’s term in office.

Chairwoman, Congressional Black Caucus, Joyce Beatty released the following statement:
“It has been brought to our attention AT&T, a long-time supporter of CBC-affiliated initiatives, has been identified as a primary sponsor of the far-right, anti-democratic, hatred-peddling organization One America News Network (OAN). AT&T’s support of OAN is in direct opposition to its claims of embracing and valuing diversity, equity, and inclusion. As members of the Congressional Black Caucus, we find these allegations appalling and call on AT&T to respond immediately. We will not yield in our dedication to combating any attempt to circumvent democratic principles, disenfranchise American voters, and marginalize Black communities. We will continue to demand accountability and transparency in our efforts to uplift and preserve diversity, equity, and inclusion at levels and across all industries. This is Our Power and Our Message!”

  • A simple check of their mergers and acquisitions offers a view into who they are in bed with, go after them. The one thing they are not going to do is fund a business embroiled in turmoil, especially if it is damaging to the portfolio.

  • We Black people need to boycott racist AT&T forever

  • Well said Roland 👏

  • I will be canceling everything AT&T. This shows you how these people stab us inder the shroud of darkness they move within. They are the most vile and evil people upon the face of the earth bar none.

  • So what? Comcast funds NBC, Disney funds ABC, Viacom funds CBS, Turner Broadcasting funds CNN. Furthermore, ATT also funds Tuner Broadcasting which in turn funds CNN a total left wing partisan site. The media is massively liberal, biased and corrupt yet one smaller conservative station is funded and the sky is falling. How tolerant, inclusive and "Diverse".

  • Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll be dropping my ATT service.

  • No more business or buying their products, ATT executives just WHERE YOUR WHITE SHEETS.

  • I got rid of ATT services years ago. They recently started flooding my mailbox and v/m trying to get me to pick their services back up

  • Stop complaining people, the universe only delivers to those who believe they have what they want and affirm it.

  • They act like they need customers. I had AT&T yrs ago I been drop them

  • AT&T like other large companies, probably donate to both republicans and democrats, hedging their bets. This way if democrats win, then AT& T has a friend in gov't, and if republicans win, same deal, they're still covered

  • I love your show Roland! Keep up the good work.

  • Roland biggest take away from this story is how he can line his own pockets? Damn this clip is sad.

  • Get in they asses. It’s the same thing ford didn’t.

  • Stop it. Filled with right wing mid information. That’s you and your followers. Spew lies and never recant debunked stories. An alternative view to your Demoncratic strong hold and race hustling is not misinformation as you state and you only want to censor it. Get back to covering the Selfie stick wielding unauthorized tourists at the capitol on the 6th. Puppets of left wing and the truth ain’t in ya!

  • Looks like I'll be getting rid of my att service!!

  • ATT has always been a corporate sponsor for a lot of black events and causes. Man you need a guide to follow the money. ATT so big I don’t know all of there subsidiaries and joint business ventures.
