Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin came out swinging Sunday, expressing outrage over AT&T/DirecTV’s censorship of Newsmax and suggesting the move “is only the start” of a socialist shift in the U.S.
The former vice presidential candidate took to her popular Instagram page to slam DirecTV, the satellite provider that deplatformed Newsmax last Tuesday night, denying the channel to more than 13 million homes.
“If you care about our Bill of Rights,” Palin writes, “you must join the cause against this censorship!”
“Censoring Newsmax is only the start in the socialist agenda to transform America. It’s serious.”
Newsmax is the fourth highest-rated cable news channel in the nation watched by 25 million Americans, according to Nielsen.
Palin described Newsmax as a “FAIR” network and repeated that Newsmax was “being CENSORED.”
Palin also remains popular among grassroots conservatives and among evangelical women.
Other Christian conservatives, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and the influential National Religious Broadcasters, have criticized AT&T/DirecTV for removing Newsmax. Continue reading at Newsmax.
