BASED ON PAGEVIEWS ON OUR BLOGSPOT SITE,
THE LOSER IS....
I don't believe it. The FCC is ACTUALLY good
Yesterday, they blocked the $3.9 billion sale
of Tribune Media to Sinclair, mainly because
the company wanted to operate flagship WGN-TV
Chicago through a shared services agreement
through a friend of the family that controls
the company instead of owning it outright. The
company was hoping that the arrangement would
please the FCC, but, well, it didn't.
Now, Sinclair is trying to work a deal where
they could still own WGN-TV outright. They
would still sell 23 stations but would use
their shell companies like Cunningham
Broadcasting and Howard Stirk Holdings to
"own" these stations.
If and when the ink dries, Sinclair would then
own stations in New York (WPIX), Los Angeles
(KTLA) and the aforementioned Chicago. They
would then own over 200 stations and reach 62%
of all US households.
Here in west Michigan, Sinclair already owns
CBS affiliate WWMT-3 and the CW franchise on
3.2. They have already announced that WXMI Fox
17 will be spun off to a new company to please
the FCC. The company already owns stations in
Flint/Tri-Cities (WSMH Fox 66 outright plus
WEYI NBC 25 and WBSF CW 46 through
subsidiaries) and Traverse City (NBC WPBN
7&4 and through Cunningham, WGTU ABC
29&8). They used to own stations in
Marquette (WLUC NBC 6, now owned by Grey) and
Lansing (WLAJ ABC 53, now operated by
Nexstar's WLNS CBS 6).
The tragedy is that Sinclair is notorious for
forcing local newscasts to transmit their
ultra-right-wing propaganda, such as their
"Terror Alert Desk" and commentaries. They
created shockwaves when it was discovered that
they were forcing their local anchors to read
a bunch of horseshit that was also read in
various other markets.
Sinclair is sadly another company forcing
their lies onto their viewers. Yes, Ajit Pai
is a total dickhead, especially for his
crappy-ass meme video regarding net
neutrality, but at least it seems that he's
listening. SINCLAIR MUST BE STOPPED.
Hopefully, all this can make WGN-TV still
"Chicago's Very Own".
