Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is putting his money where his mouth is —and canceling his DirectTV subscription after they ended their contract with conservative news channel One America News Network (OANN).
Paul announced on Twitter Monday that he was ditching DirecTV. “@DIRECTV is canceling @OANN so I just canceled my home Directv. Why give money to people who hate us?” Paul said.

DirectTV decided not to renew its contract with OANN’s parent company Herring Networks Inc., dropping Herring’s other channel AWE, as well.
“We informed Herring Networks that, following a routine internal review, we do not plan to enter into a new contract when our current agreement expires,” DirecTV said in a statement to Bloomberg on Friday.
