We are gratified to hear that DirecTV has agreed to end its months-long censorship of Newsmax by bringing it back to its platform. At CPAC, Matt Schlapp led the effort to reinstate Newsmax with letters to the CEOs of both DirecTV and its parent company AT&T urging Newsmax’s reinstatement, and by rallying conservatives across the country through social media and in interviews.

“The censorship of Newsmax was an attempt by woke leftist activists to silence viewpoints that they disagree with. We stand firmly against information warfare on either side of the aisle, and we will not stand idly by and watch this censorship take place. On behalf of the conservatives across the nation that we represent, we did everything in our power to see the restoration of Newsmax to DirecTV’s platform and are pleased to see that these efforts were rewarded and Newsmax’s platform restored. We stand ready to make sure DirecTV honors their promise to “support diverse voices, including conservative ones” in the future so American voters can make informed decisions through a fair and balanced presentation of news.”
