One America News, the right-wing pro-Trump cable news ‘network’ is also fundraising for so-called election audits.
A new report from Media Matters for America shows a series of on-air appeals from a One America News reporter repeatedly urging voters to donate to the conspiracy-tinged action.
One America News has frequently promoted conspiracy theories and fake news to prop up Trump. They came under fire in the immediate aftermath of the election after making disputed claims that the election was rigged via voting machines. The network even deleted stories from its official website with these claims after Dominion, a voting machine company, began making noise about suing over the claims.
During his time in the White House, Trump frequently called on One America News to elevate his administration’s propaganda and to air largely untrue attacks about his opponents within the Democratic Party.
The so-called “audits” have come under widespread public criticism for being part of an attempt to overturn the legitimate results of the 2020 presidential election. Multiple independent investigations and recounts have shown that President Joe Biden won the 2020 election, despite the protests and conspiracy theories from Donald Trump and his allies.
The audits have even been described as “fraudits,” using a derisive nickname to denigrate the events.
A report recently emerged that multiple women were allegedly sexually harassed at the Arizona “audit.”
