Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights
On January 25, the same day that Newsmax announced that it had been unjustly sacked by the AT&T-owned DirecTV, I called on Catholics to rally to its side. Specifically, I asked them to cancel their subscription to DirecTV and acquire a new carrier.
Subsequently, I was followed by a host of prominent Americans who registered their criticism of DirecTV, many of whom called for a boycott. Politicians, corporate leaders, TV personalities, sports figures, actors, lawyers, religious leaders—a Who’s Who of American public figures—lambasted DirecTV, calling on them to carry Newsmax again.
It’s time to keep the pressure on. If you haven’t already cancelled your DirecTV subscription, please do so now. Not only is Newsmax a Catholic-friendly source, it is the nation’s fourth largest cable television news network. To be singled out for political reasons is un-American and unacceptable.
