MAGA propaganda network OAN has sued DirecTV parent AT&T and its Chairman William Kennard over some vague breaches of contract like a “non-disparagement clause” related to DirecTV’s planned booting of OAN from its lineup in a complaint that insinuates Dominion Voting Systems (which is suing OAN for $1.6 billion for defamation) had something to do with it because Kennard (Obama’s Ambassador to the European Union, also kind of looks like Obama) also sits on the board of Dominion’s corporate parent. OAN’s lawyers can’t help themselves but litigate MAGA 2020 conspiracy shit in a complaint that has nothing whatsoever to do with the election.
“Dominion, which Staple Street acquired in 2018, has provided and continues to provide electronic voting systems for elections held in several states in the country, including for the 2020 presidential election. Long before the 2020 U.S. presidential election, voting machines and software created by Dominion were under intense public scrutiny for their lack of security and reliability. For example, in 2017, Georgia voters filed a lawsuit related to the security of Dominion voting machines, and in October 2020, the federal judge in that case credited testimony from an ‘array of experts and subject matter specialists [that] provided a huge volume of significant evidence regarding the security risks and deficits in the [Dominion] systems,’ finding that those risks were neither ‘hypothetical nor remote,'” says page 10 of the complaint. What a great way to get a case started.
