When you work for Sinclair Broadcasting, you are fuel for the Trump propaganda machine, Just like the people that work for the RT.

Let's take a closer look at Sinclair...

The FCC, under the direction of @AjitPaiFCC, are undoing regulations to allow a pro-Trump news organization to buy out local news stations across the country.

There are, rather, were laws in place to prevent this from happening.

In addition to being the destroyer of the free internet (TM), @AjitPaiFCC also met with Sinclair Broadcasting right after the inauguration and started removing restrictions that Sinclair wanted removed.

The Tribune merger is at the heart of all of this. Sinclair will be in 72% of American homes, free to spread their right wing biased media.

This eviscerates FCC principles: diverse ownership, diverse viewpoints, and localism.

The Justice Department has said no way Sinclair can merge with Tribune as it will absolutely stifle competition around the country.

Sinclair is attempting to subvert this by selling off stations to people that are friendly to Sinclair and will do what they want.

And, just to tie this into #StupidGate, Jared Kushner admitted to trading political favors (aka, the Tribune merger) for favorable campaign coverage for the Trump campaign.

Which, PS, is like 100% illegal.

Sinclair requires it's channels to air segments that don't tilt to the right so heavily skew to the right.

For example, they said people shouldn't vote for HRC because, at one point, Democrats were pro slavery.

(So were Republicans...)

Sinclair likes Boris Epshteyn so much, they increased his must runs to 9 times a week.

Boris is a former citizen of the Soviet Union and, apparently, is still a #communist. Oh, and under investigation in the Mueller probe.

Remember last week's must runs?

The scripted segments Sinclair forced their stations to run sounded like it was a mashup written by Suzanne Collins, Veronica Roth, and John Marsden.


Sinclair likes to threaten their employees into not talking to the press about how they have the must runs.

Finally, Sinclair likes to lock their employees into non compete contracts that require the employee to buy their way out of any contract signed in order to leave the station.
