The first thing budding dictators do is go after the free press., They do that because they know a free and independent press is what preserves liberty and freedom. Donald Trump is scum of the earth.

How America's Largest Local TV Owner Turned Its News Anchors Into Soldiers In Trump's War On The Med...

 

Earlier this month, CNN’s Brian Stelter broke the news that Sinclair Broadcast Group, owner or operator of nearly 200 television stations in the U.S., would be forcing its news anchors to record a promo about “the troubling trend of irresponsible, one sided news stories plaguing our country.” The script, which parrots Donald Trump’s oft-declarations of developments negative to his presidency as “fake news,” brought upheaval to newsrooms already dismayed with Sinclair’s consistent interference to bring right-wing propaganda to local television broadcasts.

 

You might remember Sinclair from its having been featured on John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight last year, or from its requiring in 2004 of affiliates to air anti-John Kerry propaganda, or perhaps because it’s your own local affiliate running inflammatory “Terrorism Alerts” or required editorials from former Trump adviser Boris Epshteyn, he of the famed Holocaust Remembrance Day statement that failed to mention Jewish people. (Sinclair also owns Ring of Honor wrestling, Tennis magazine, and the Tennis Channel.)

 

 

This is extremely dangerous to our democracy!


This is why Reagan killed the "Fairness Doctrine" for the FCC and why it must be re-enstated - to prevent rich turds from spreading lies that slander their opponents be they business or political. Sinclair was the platform for the totally bogus Swift-boaters who never even met John Kerry spread their lies about his heroic service in Vietnam while remaining silent on jrbush's gutless desertion from his Stateside Reserve Unit.

 

He's a disciple of Joseph Goebbels who knows that if you tell lies big enough and often enough, people will come to believe they're not lies at all, but pristine truth.

 

The "bias" in the media is a result of the NRAGOP lying so often about so many things and the media reporting the actual facts instead of the "alternative facts" that support Republican lies or conceal Republican misdeeds.

 

Being "biased" in favor of TRUTH is a very good thing.

 

Demanding equal time for lies and slander is a very Republican thing.
