To all of us fighting to take back our country. We are fighting a two-front battle in the war of propaganda and misinformation. The cyber war is one front, broadcast (TV) media is the second front in this battle. ( revised and had to redo due to lost posts) Thread 👇
I will start with an important thread by Troll Huntress on the war being waged against us in social media which addresses twitter in particular.
Sinclair is a right-wing Broadcast Group that is buying up local stations, enabling them to spread Trumaganda to a large population. Many people still depend on "trusted" local stations and Sinclair takes advantage of this in a big way. Searchable link
If you have been wondering why your beloved local channel has been airing Trumpaganda, Sinclair forces local stations to air pro Trump programming.…
This segment by John Oliver, does a great job of pointing out all the dangers of Sinclair, and shows examples, with humor.

The must run segments include ‘The Terror Alert.” This daily fear fueling "alert" is almost laughable at times.
Did they strike a deal for straighter coverage? Or are they making sure Trump always looks good and feeding the public standard Trump/GOP BS.… via @politico

There is a potential fine to be imposed by the FCC on Sinclair, but I am not going to hold my breath for it. I believe that in the end this will just go away, since to date I have not been able to find anything new on the issue.
We now have Koch getting into the media game. This may become another outlet for the pushing of Koch's agenda.…
The Koch’s just got their hands on Time. Who’s next?
We also have Murdoch and Mercer which could be an entire thread on their own. Just one article on Murdoch for this thread. via @usatoday
Over looked in Trumpaganda outlets is Facebook with "Trump TV" videos. So I decided to take a peak at Trump's Facebook since this has been over looked. Well this should be taken more seriously as a Trumpaganda outlet which has "News" videos as bad or worse than Fox.
I have just shown a few pics of the "network" in these two posts including "two of my greatest supporters" interview(?). It was an interesting tour/insight into pro Trump supporters. I recommend you take a look and see the Facebook version of Trumaganda.
This is being reported from several outlets some mainstream some not, but worth mentioning in this thread. It will be interesting to see the outcome if any or like the fine on Sinclair just a news blip and nothing more.…
PEW from 2017 on the 5 media companies that own most local TV. If the merger is approved for Sinclair and Tribune it will become 4.…
Local channels are not happy with "must runs".… via @seattletimes
Sinclair's new media-bashing promos rankle local anchors via @CNNMoney
14.It’s important to be aware of Sinclair and similar media corporations for their use of broadcast media to push an agenda. Many of us use streaming services so no longer deal with Trumpaganda, however many are not streaming and a bombarded on a daily basis.
