Newsmax is a conservative news network founded by Christopher Ruddy on September 16, 1998, with their television channel being launched on Dish Network and DirecTV on June 16, 2014. It is known for pushing several conspiracy theories by former President Donald J. Trump, including the widely-disputed claims that the 2020 Presidential Election was stolen from him.
These conspiracy theories have ultimately led to several ongoing lawsuits filed by Dominion Voting Systems and Smartmatic over defamatory claims of election fraud.
The network was pulled from DirecTV on January 24, 2023 over a carriage fee dispute, as they seek $1/year from each subscriber whilst arguing that liberal news network CNN “receives $14/year from each subscriber.” As the network has since been replaced by the conservative opinion network The First, Newsmax claims the decision to pull their network was an act of censorship, launching a petition urging viewers to cancel their DirecTV subscriptions and call their lawmakers, telling them you want Newsmax instead of “woke media.”
I initially held off on listing the network as a total scam organization, until just recently when they started issuing fraudulent robocalls to everyone via Onvoy numbers like (202) 852-8699 and (202) 894-7314
“Hi, my name is Frank Collins and I’m calling on behalf of Newsmax. You’ve heard that AT&T’s DirecTV has canceled Newsmax from its satellite TV and U-Verse Newsmax is the fourth highest rated cable news channel. AT&T and DirecTV still cancelled them. President Trump, Mike Huckabee, Sarah Palin, Dr. Ben Carson, and others are all saying AT&T and DirecTV are censoring Newsmax, a major conservative news source. Nancy Pelosi demanded AT&T remove both Newsmax and OAN and AT&T remove them both. You can fight censorship like from AT&T and DirecTV by standing up for free speech. Just press one on your phone now and will connect you to DirecTV to complain and demand that Newsmax is put back on the air. Also press one, and we’ll connect you to Congress so you can ask for hearings on liberal censorship. It takes just a minute. Please act today. This call paid for by Newsmax 561-494-0615.”
