Sinclair challenges Fox to most misinformation

Fox News remains the leader in news purveyors, regularly edging out CNN and MSNBC, which establishes the IQ, or the lack there of, for many TV viewers. But Kantt news says, "A conservative-based media company is putting political propaganda in your living room without you even knowing it." They refer to Sinclair Broadcast Group, founded in 1971 by Julian Sinclair Smith, the largest owner of television stations in the entire country. Their coverage is just under 40 percent of the population, and the goal is 72% for the near future. But apparently Donald Trump hasn't discovered it yet since Fox is still his primary source of information; Fox has "...presented misinformation and glorified propaganda to households across the country, which in turn has affected how people behave when they vote." Pathetic, since most of it is inaccurate, but illustrating just how Trump has put a ring in the noses of so many poor souls.

The following shows just how critical the dilemma is and questions how much confidence we should have in the local news stations owned by Sinclair across the country. Now they are after Tribune Media, which could turn Sinclair into a monopoly. This is how Kantt expresses it...

The conservative bias of Sinclair’s broadcasting is far worse than Fox News. Like a virus, it infiltrates our homes and spreads dangerous propaganda — and we might not even know it. A "2016 Pew Research Center study found that more people trust local news than national organizations."


Take the time to read the Kantt article. It is terrifying for Progressives!

2. Don't most anchors have scripts?

You can see and hear the new or not-so-good anchors reading.

4. Local Sinclair staion WKRC-TV uses Boris Epshteyn for the propaganda.

No way I'm hanging around to hear and watch that character.
He's heavy-handed from the get-go.

I feel sorry for the long-time and popular broadcasters on that station, as Epshteyn is such a turn-off that the station has to be losing share.
