The Lincoln Project just released a video of a mock AT&T commercial bragging about their phone service while funding white nationalist hosts at the far-right network OAN.

Raw Story brings us the news no one else dares to report. I appreciate them and will try to eke out a contribution this month. ATT&T sucks and I'm just glad my cell phone and internet are not dependent upon them and never will be.

AT&T were the most helpful in allowing the dubya administration to start secretly spying on everyone.

Until changes in the telecommunications business were forced upon it, AT&T never had to advertise its services. I recall one of their earliest TV ads, with a bunch of old white executive-types sitting behind a table in a board room, and the tag line was 'The System is The Solution'. AT&T was out of touch then and continue to be today. The company needs to be continually shamed until they are forced to give up their support of OAN, which will stop broadcasting about five minutes later. That day and time cannot come soon enough...

Their support of OAN is disgusting. I've dumped their stock, will change my phone service as soon as I am able. They will get no love (or more $$) from me.

This needs to run as a commercial across all channels.

AT&T funded OAN with 10's of millions of dollars, carried it on the Uverse product and had DircTV carry it.

Bury AT&T. Now.

I want changes to telecom rules too. Net Neutrality is a good start.

AT&T isn't the only player. In 2017, T-Mobile CEO stayed at the Old Post Office just to schmooz with Trump.

Changed from ATT to T-mobile this morning. Enough is enough.
