So, it wouldn't be a surprise to me if you saw Democrat and Republican propaganda being broadcast on the same channel on FOX or left-leaning MSM.
    When the wife first went ballistic over this, I told her that they have to run political ads regardless of which party. But what I saw isn't a political ad per se. It doesn't promote any democrat that I saw it is just a misinformation hit piece.

    I guess maybe I could jail break the Amazon Fire and get OAN but I have not tried.

    So, so if anyone knows how I can get OAN or Rumble using a fire stick, Peacock or PS4 let me know.
    I get OAN on DirecTV, but my main issue with them is they really only have an hour or two of news all day and keep repeating the same thing over and over. Their evening hosts are frankly pretty boring with the exception of Natalie Harp. My problem with her is she worked for Trump which is fine, but she keeps blowing the Trump horn which is yesterdays news.

    With pro-vax Newsmax being Fox-lite, there just isn't much on the tube for conservatives.

    Thank you for the information. I am now going to show my ignorance. As I see it the links you gave are for over the internet. So, it is easy using my PC to open OAN, I do it every day. But my TV is attached to a streaming device. I guess I will spend some time and try and figure out how I can go on the Internet and make bookmarks to see OAN, Rumble and Newsmax.

    @Freewill when we were living in our RV while our home was being built, I used this link to watch OAN streaming...

    What I did was connect my TV as a monitor to a computer and then use the TV's remote to switch back and forth between sources.

    Fox promotes fair and balanced. If it rejects the left, it is fair but not balanced. MSNBC and the rest of the clown shows only accept the Democrats.
    When I die, please do not count my vote for Democrats.

    I have a 65" flat screen that is both my TV plus the monitor. Works excellent.

    Many of the ads on Fox and other channels are for local businesses, so it is possible that some ads are beyond Fox's control.

    I think Tucker, Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Gutfeld are right-leaning and worth watching. Only issue I have with Hannity is too much repetition, he talks over guests too much, and has some RINOs. So I end up watching only a small part of his program.

    The major thing that Fox did to annoy those of us on the right was in 2020 to call AZ too soon and FL too late, many of us think for partisan reasons. But in their defense, they did fire the culprit in charge of that, the Grinning Jackass, aka Chris Stirewalt.

    I'll watch those few Fox programs, but also OANN and Newsmax. The main issue I have with all three are the MyPillow commercials every 7.5 minutes. He's a good guy but all the commercials are like Chinese Water Torture - oops I mean Asian Water Torture hehe. That's why I always record and skip through all commercials and talking heads I want to skip.

    You sound like me with Fox and Hannity.

    On Fox here in Arizona we get Balance of Nature ads relentessly every commercial break, only a few My Pillow ads. OAN obviously needs a lot of revenue, so I welcome any ads on that network.
