Sinclair Broadcasting is making its stations push wingnut propaganda. Here’s a bit of a report from SeattlePI:
Many KOMO employees view the segments as propaganda that doesn’t meet the station’s editorial standards, according to the Times article. In the past, they have tried to limit their exposure by scheduling them during times of low viewership.
But Wednesday’s segment shows Sinclair, which currently owns or operates 193 television stations in the U.S., has succeeded in getting the must-runs on during prime time.
I gave up on broadcast news long ago, not for being slanted (though some of it is, much more often to the right than to the left), but for being superficial.
About the only time we turn on TV news is when there’s a snowstorm . . . .
