Since its inception in 2013, OAN has been a sympathetic voice for Trump and regularly broadcasts its meetings and speeches without interruption. When Trump took office in 2017, Herring Sr. OAN instructed not only to push through Trump’s candidacy, but also to avoid his early troubles in office. Herring Sr. also urged the network to spread stories of police shootings, encourage anti-abortion stories and minimize coverage of Russian aggression, according to more than a dozen current and former producers, writers and anchors who met with The Washington Post, as well as internal emails from Herring Sr. and its top news executives.
