I don't believe it. The FCC is ACTUALLY good for something!

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".
