ONAN (One America News Network or OANN nickname)

One America News Network (OAN or OANN) was founded in 2013. Some critics have dubbed the OANN network “ONAN” (like “onanism”).

“@OANN. Hope it’s covered by other networks as we don’t get onan” was posted on Twitter by Eunice Stevens on January 27, 2016. “OANN=ONAN” was posted on Twitter by Steven on May 28, 2016. “Trump gives a shout-out to OANN (which I always think of as ONAN in my head)” was posted on Twitter by Chris Hayes on August 28, 2017. “Only ONAN (The Network of Jerk Offs) will stoke your (President Donald Trump’s—ed.) ego” was posted on Twitter by Michael Day on April 12, 2020.

Other OANN nicknames include “grOANN, ” “OANonsense,” “One America Nonsense Network” and “Only Assholes News Network.”

Faux news is no longer enough of a lapdog? You’ve switched to ONAN? “Both Vanity Fair and The Independent in London have said that the channel promotes falsehoods and conspiracy theories. Some sources describe the network as belonging to the far-right.”

It’s admittedly impressive that their briefing after days of delaying still didn’t get the usual bloodlust going in US lawmakers.
Peeps at Faux and ONAN gonna be pulling overtime to come up with rationales and hypotheticals now.

You’re beginning to spiral down Donnie. Even Faux News sees it. Only ONAN (The Network of Jerk Offs) will stoke your ego. Just go away.

Good lord.  It looks like they’re doing a thoroughly Britishized version of our “One America News Network” (OANN, which I can never not see as ONAN).  Pro tip - occasionally check how many Russians/Belarussians/etc are working there).
