“For months, the Trump-allied media organization has published stories about Dominion Voting Systems and perpetuated the false conspiracy theory that the company rigged the 2020 president election for President Joe Biden at the expense of former president Donald Trump,” Jacob Shamsian of BI reports. “But sometime in January, OAN removed stories about Dominion from its website.”
Stories about Smartmatic, another election technology company included in the conspiracy theories, have also reportedly been removed, along with stories about pro-Trump, pro-conspiracy theory attorneys Sidney Powell, Rudy Giuliani, and Lin Wood.
According to a review of the Wayback Machine internet archive, OAN had published more than a dozen stories categorized with the “Dominion Voting System” tag, including stories based on false claims of vote-switching. As of Wednesday, the tag showed just one article, published on January 4, about a “MAGA victory rally” in Georgia, according to Business Insider.
