A pair of House Democrats asked television providers including AT&T, Verizon, and Comcast on Monday whether they would consider dropping Fox News, Newsmax and One America News from its cable offerings.
California Reps. Anna Eshoo and Jerry McNerney made their inquiry in a Monday letter to AT&T CEO John Stankey and other industry executives. “Misinformation on TV has led to our current polluted information environment that radicalizes individuals to commit seditious acts and rejects public health best practices, among other issues in our public discourse,” the duo wrote, citing as evidence a January op-ed in The Washington Post that suggested the media should do more to exclude conservative voices.
“To our knowledge, the cable, satellite, and over-the-top companies that disseminate these media outlets to American viewers have done nothing in response to the misinformation aired by these outlets,” Eshoo and McNerney added, noting AT&T carries the three networks they named on U-verse, DirecTV, and AT&T TV.
The only opinion is that of the party.
