Posting this in politics because Sinclair is what I'd call right of Fox wrt politics. Now they're gonna have stations in New York, LA, and Chicago plus a ton of local Fox affiliates.

Before the 2004 presidential election, Sinclair drew sharp criticism, including from Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, for its refusal to broadcast an episode of “Nightline” devoted to reciting the names of every member of the military killed in action in Iraq. The company, which sent Mr. Hyman and one of its reporters to Iraq earlier in the year to find positive stories that were not being told, said the broadcast amounted to an antiwar statement, The New York Times reported.

Then, just days before the election, Sinclair aired parts of a documentary critical of the anti-Vietnam War activities of John Kerry, the Democratic nominee. The company had originally planned to air the documentary in full, The Times reported, but pressure from advertisers and shareholders led it to run only excerpts during a program on the election.

More recently, Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law and now a senior adviser in the White House, said at a meeting with business executives that the Trump campaign had reached an agreement with Sinclair to give more access to Mr. Trump and the campaign under the condition that the interviews be broadcast without commentary on the company’s affiliates, according to two people who had attended the meeting but were not authorized to discuss it. Taped in Sinclair’s Washington bureau, the interviews with Mr. Trump were broadcast across several swing states.

Meanwhile, MSNBC appears to be moving to the right further every day.

I really think the left is in big trouble in America. The right controls so much of the information.

I agree. It's terrifying actually.

I don't watch it, but it's been discussed on Twitter lately. First Greta got a show, now Hugh Hewitt. They also just hired George Will in some capacity.

Apparently it's a strategy.

I said when the blonde that left Fox News and went to Good Morning America, can't think of her name, that it's all part of the right wing's strategy. Get their hosts to infiltrate the main stream media and the left media. Pretty soon there will be no left leaning media to speak of. The right has done some an amazing job of taking over this country. It wouldn't be commendable if they weren't so evil.

Cant embed from my iPad, but John Oliver did a story on how big of a deal this is. FYI, St. Louis has a Tribune/soon to be Sinclair station.

America really is no longer a democracy in any credible sense.
