One America News Network

Jump to: navigation, search

One America News Network (OAN or OANN) is an independent cable news channel owned by Herring Networks. Based out of San Diego, California, the network is best known for its news reports which are objective and straightforward and its conservative talk shows The Daily Ledger hosted by Graham Ledger, Tipping Point hosted by Liz Wheeler, and Real America News with Dan Ball.

Wikipedia claims in its article on OANN that the channel "has been noted for promoting falsehoods and conspiracy theories"[1] as a means to discredit and dismiss factual reports (including claims of those stories being "debunked") that have aired on the channel,[2] but have frequently included false information about OANN and the news stories the channel has covered in the site's article[3][4] and have used liberal-biased (and thus non-credible) sources to back their claims.

OANN, a conservative news source, filed a legal brief in support of U.S. President Donald Trump being allowed to revoke CNN's Jim Acosta press pass when Fox News sided with the liberal media.[5]

OANN is a potential conservative competitor to the increasingly liberal Fox News, which is under the control of Rupert Murdoch.[6]

Dominion Voting Systems Lawsuit

Dominion Voting Systems has filed a billion-dollar lawsuit against OANN for its alleged spread of misinformation during the 2020 election. OANN is accusing Dominion of rigging the ballots in President Biden's favor via their voting machines. These alleged lies, according to Dominion, have harmed the company, its employees and its customers, workers have been threatened, and their offices vandalized. Additional lawsuits also name OANN CEO Robert Herring as well as his son, OANN President Charles Herring; the chief White House correspondent for OANN, Chanel Rion; and a network personality, Christina Bobb.

OANN and DirecTV Subscribers

OANN is being dropped by DirecTV and will no longer be available to their customers through this streaming and satellite service. According to an email sent to Fox News, the DirecTV spokesman said, "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." [8] The contract is expected to expire in early April, 2022. DirecTV is the largest distributor of the news channel. [9]

Georgia Election Workers Defamation Lawsuit

Two Georgia election workers who were the target of vote-rigging conspiracy theories sued OANN and its top executives for allegedly spreading lies about them. The defamation lawsuit was filed on December 23, 2021, in federal court in Washington, D.C., by Wandrea "Shaye" Moss, a voter registration officer in Fulton County, and her mother, Ruby Freeman, who was a temp worker for the 2020 election. [10] Moss and Freeman agreed to settle defamation claims against OANN according to a court document filed April 21, 2022. The terms of the settlement were not disclosed. [11] On May 9, 2022, OANN broadcast the following statement as a result of settling the lawsuit filed by Moss and Freeman.[12]

Georgia officials have concluded that there was no widespread voter fraud by election workers who counted ballots at the State Farm Arena in November 2020. The results of this investigation indicate that Ruby Freeman and Wandrea 'Shaye' Moss did not engage in ballot fraud or criminal misconduct. A legal matter with this network and the two election workers has been resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties through a fair and reasonable settlement.


White House Correspondents Association

The White House Correspondents Association (WHCA) tried to censor OANN during the Chinese Communist coronavirus pandemic because of its anti-CCP propaganda war reporting (with one of the WHCA's members, CNN reporter Oliver Darcy, even going so far as to smear OANN as a "small right-wing outlet" and lie about one of its reporters in a Twitter post in a weak attempt at discrediting it), while simultaneously and hypocritically allowing a propagandist/"reporter" from Hong Kong-based CCP propaganda outlet Phoenix TV to attend White House press conferences and state the official CCP propaganda line regarding its claimed "contributions" during the CCP virus pandemic to President Donald Trump instead of asking actual relevant questions, which Trump called her out on.[13][14][15]

Google/YouTube censorship and liberal media attacks

In November 2020, Google-owned YouTube illegally blocked OANN from uploading videos to its YouTube channel for one week and demonitized the channel after it posted a video that reported the truth about the CCP flu and about the illegality and unconstitutionality of the lockdowns being imposed by Democrat governors and mayors.[16] YouTube also deleted the video, while Axios, which first reported the illegal suspension by YouTube, falsely claimed that OANN was "spreading misinformation" and that the video was "promoting a phony cure" for the CCP flu, while CNN "reporter"/hack Donie O'Sullivan likewise falsely claimed, without proof, that OANN "has become a hub of conspiracy theories undermining the integrity of the election" while ignoring that it is the Democrat Party itself that has undermined electoral integrity through its use of illegal vote fraud to steal the 2020 presidential election for Joe Biden, which the liberal media has conveniently chosen to ignore to cover for their Democrat puppetmasters. The left-wing Anti-Defamation League also opined on the YouTube attack on OANN, claiming that YouTube's actions were "insufficient" and, in also covering for Democrat election fraud, falsely claimed, also without proof, that the channel had been "spreading electoral misinformation".
