The Lincoln Project just released a video of a mock AT&T commercial bragging about their phone service while funding white nationalist hosts at the far-right network OAN.
Using videos of happy people talking on cell phones, the “ad” and how the company allows users to reach out to their friends and family to “feel the connection too many Americans are missing today.”
“Your AT&T plan helps fund One America News Network. OANN is a streaming channel that hires radical, alt-right, white nationalists as hosts, cheers the Capitol attacks and promotes COVID-19 conspiracy theories! Want more? By keeping your cell service with AT&T you can pay OANN host Pearson Sharp call for mass executions! And with AT&T you’ll be able to keep funding politicians like Texas Gov. Greg Abbott pushing radical new laws against voting rights and women’s rights! AT&T: Funding sedition, oppression and, of course, One America News Network.”
