One America News Network, often called OANN, or One America News, was founded by Robert Herring in San Diego, California. The company operates a conservative, far right-wing pay American news channel.
Originally launched with the intention of targeting a conservative and center to right-wing audience, OAN states that its goal is to deliver credible national and international news coverage. The channel is highly pro-Trump. Vanity Fair, The Independent, and others have stated that the channel promotes falsehoods and conspiracy theories, rather than news coverage.
Founder and owner, Robert Herring, reportedly insists that producers play down the known Russian interference in the 2016 election while issuing unfounded negative statements against democrats, Muslims, and others, such as their 2017 statement saying that crime in the UK had increased with the spread of radical Islamic terrorists.
The company is a Trump favorite but is still struggling to get listed on many cable company carriers.
As of September 2019, OANN boasts that it is available to 35 million households.
OANN sued talk show host, Rachel Maddow of MSNBC after she blasted the channel as “paid Russian propaganda” in September 2019.
Headquarters for OANN are located in San Diego, California.
