This is extremely dangerous to our democracy

An explanation, in case you need one:

With “must-run” commentary from ex-Trump aide Boris Epshteyn and fear-mongering updates from its “Terrorism Alert Desk,” Sinclair has already forced its stations to air commentary that tilts to the right. The latest message, described by more than one observer as “Orwellian,” makes explicit the corporation’s efforts to undermine trust in the press. 

Or as Deadspin puts it:

The net result of the company’s current mandate is dozens upon dozens of local news anchors looking like hostages in proof-of-life videos, trying their hardest to spit out words attacking the industry they’d chosen as a life vocation.

  1. THANK-YOU, Carl.... Maybe NOW some of the libtards, and faux "progressive" left, and the anti-2nd Amendment gun-grabbers will realize what Trump REALLY means by "fake news".... With 95%+ of U.S. media owned by *6* corporations, what do you expect. So-called "main-stream media" is in REALITY the world's largest "non-governmental" PROPAGANDA MACHINE. This is not the first video of it's type that I've seen, and I hope more people see it. Follow the MONEY, people! TPTB, - "The Powers That Be", aka, the "Global Ruling Elite/Global Banksters", want you to be scared, and emotionally upset, and confused. There *IS* an agenda, and your best interests are NOT part of it. Look at the recent media blitz over "guns". Ask yourself, *how* *many* psychiatrists have you heard come forward and talk about the HUGE increase in psych drugs pushed on schoolkids? NONE? See what I mean? ALWAYS ask yourself, "yeah, but what are *they* NOT telling us?".... This isn't much, but it's something, and it's my small part. Thank-you, Carl. KEEP UP the GOOD WORK.
