One America News Network, also known as OAN, is nearing extinction — and it’s not because Americans lack interest in right-wing extremism and conspiracy theories.
Essentially, OAN shot to prominence in the media during the 2020 election, pushing Fox News even further to the right. It’s also where America’s MAGA lover, Representative Majorie Taylor Greene, started cable television. So how is it facing its demise, and why?
According to this reward of the episode New abnormality guest, Angelo Carusone, president and chief executive officer of Media Matters for America, the answer had nothing to do with advertisers or viewership. It stems from recent news that DirecTV plans to give the channel a launch — and a failed promise from AT&T when it launched 12 years ago.
