DirecTV announced Friday that it plans to abandon the right-wing media operation OAN (An American news network) in a matter of months, giving a major setback to the network that has been a favorite of former President Donald Trump.

The satellite television provider notified OAN’s owner, Herring Networks Inc., that stop carrying the two channels of the company — OAN and lifestyle channel AWE — when their contract expires in early April, according to Bloomberg, which was first to report the decision.

The controversial OAN, based in san diego, relies heavily on DirecTV, one of the largest pay-TV providers in the United States, to deliver its channels to consumers. Without DirecTV, only Verizon FiOS and a few small pay-TV providers will carry the OAN news, according to its website.

“We have advised Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not does not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” DirecTV said in a statement to Bloomberg.

The company, owned by AT&T and TPG, did not provide a reason. But critics have repeatedly demanded that the company abandon OAN because of the misinformation it promotes, most notably the baseless claim that the 2020 presidential election was rigged against Trump, but also various conspiracy theories and dangerous misinformation about COVID-19.

Two OAN correspondents who spoke enthusiastically about the widely discredited audit of presidential votes in Maricopa County, Arizona, last year also donated $605,000 to the vote verification operation, records revealed. Last year, Dominion Voting Systems sued OAN for $1.6 billion for defamation for allegedly pushing “verifiably false but devastating lies about Dominion.”

Media regulator Media Matters has been campaigning for more than a year to convince OAN’s cable providers to drop the channel.

“DirecTV made the responsible decision to leave OAN. OAN is a cauldron of disinformation and extremism,” Angelo Carusone, president of Media Matters, said in a statement provided to HuffPost on Friday.

“DirecTV made a careless mistake in 2021 when it renewed its contract with OAN even after OAN spent weeks attacking the election and fanning the embers that helped fuel the January 6 insurrection. They gave OAN a full year to undermine our democracy, and our country suffered for it.”

DirecTV has been “functionally supporting OAN for years. Without DirecTV, OAN certainly wouldn’t exist in its current form, and possibly wouldn’t exist at all,” added Carusone.

He called on Verizon FiOS to now remove OAN as well.

John Bergmayer, legal director of the advocacy group Public Knowledge, said late last year in a blog post that “the NAO’s support for the ‘Big Lie’ that the 2020 election was stolen,” as well as the conspiracy theories and misinformation about COVID-19, “goes from being a participant in the marketplace of ideas to a peddler of toxic lies.”

OAN could not be immediately reached for comment. There was no mention of the development on his Twitter account.

DirecTV has offered OAN programming to customers since 2017.
