Media Matters accuses local tv broadcast provider of pro-Trump bias

“As it closes in on a significant expansion into major cities and battleground states across the country, conservative local news behemoth Sinclair Broadcast Group has gone into overdrive with its pro-Trump and anti-media propaganda,” writes Pam Vogel at Media Matters (MM).

Sinclair puts conservative thought into their programming; that is a good thing due to the surplus of far left, liberal media. Consequently, if you live in a mid-sized city in a battleground state, it is likely you will see pro-Trump messages on local news broadcasts by next election season thanks to Sinclair, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the Trump administration itself.

MM gripes that Sinclair broadcasts segments like the Bottom Line with Boris  on stations across 34 states and the District of Columbia during times when they could, for example, be broadcasting news of Trump adviser and lawyer Paul Manafort facing federal indictment– as if there wasn’t enough coverage of such marquee news stories already.

In May the FCC approved Sinclair’s acquisition of Tribune Media, which now gives Sinclair access to even more areas of the country including the top media markets reaching nearly 75 percent of American households.

In October, the FCC voted 3-2 to eliminate its “main studio rule.” The requirement stated that local news stations maintain offices within the communities they have a presence. Without the main studio rule, Sinclair is free to consolidate and centralize local news resources in its roughly 190 stations across the country. However, this in no way removes the ‘local’ in local news. A reporter in Boston isn’t going to report on a local story that took place in Sacramento because Boston no longer maintains a local news office. This move cements a relationship between  Sinclair and the Trump FCC, a relationship that seems to benefit all involved including conservatives.

From its website:

Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. is one of the largest and most diversified television broadcasting companies in the country. Sinclair owns and operates, programs or provides sales services to more television stations than anyone and has affiliations with all the major networks. Sinclair is the leading local news provider in the country and owns a multicast network, four radio stations and a cable network. 

Thank you, Sinclair.
