  • Dozens of House Republicans have banded together in a letter accusing DirectTV of unfairly targeting conservative media, including the upcoming dropping of Newsmax from its service.
  • “The lawmakers also accused DirecTV of denying Newsmax cable fees on a “fair and equitable basis, and requested viewership data from DirecTV, claiming liberal-leaning networks are given better treatment despite drawing in less viewers,” reported Mediaite.
  • “Now more than ever, the American people need access to a free and fair press. I am sure that DirecTV will claim that removing Newsmax from their lineup of channels was purely a business decision, but that is hard to accept when liberal news channels like Vice Media continue to remain on the air,” said Rep. Wesley Hunt in a statement to the Washington Examiner.
