Academy-Award-winning actor Jon Voight has shared a video encouraging conservatives to speak out against AT&T’s DirectTV for de-platforming conservative news network Newsmax.
“My friends, we all love truths and good news, and that’s what Newsmax brought to us,” Voight said in his video, posted Wednesday night. “We were able to rely on truths. Now, the left are taking it down, so [that] we the people of America should not be able to feel safe and see truths.”
Voight calls on Americans to “take our freedom of speech back, our greatest asset in the land of the free, the freedom of one’s right to be and to see the lies put upon this country.”
“This is a blatant act of political discrimination and censorship against Newsmax,” Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy said. “The most extreme liberal channels, even with tiny ratings, get fees from AT&T’s DirecTV, but Newsmax and OAN need to be de-platformed.”
