Originally published April 10, 2018:
Earlier today, I was on UpNorthLive.com, the
website to northern Michigan NBC affiliate WPBN
7&4 when a message popped up stating "CNN's
hypocritical attack on Sinclair". I clicked the
link and a YouTube video popped up.
In the video, Sinclair published two different
videos regarding CNN. One had them attacking
Sinclair and another had another anchor talking
about how social media sites like Facebook have
posters that don't tell the truth.
Of course, Sinclair is in crisis mode after a
video of anchors from multiple stations of
theirs appeared online where they all read from
the same script. Many of those anchors have even
slammed the company for their fake brand of
journalism and the fact that they're forcing
local newscasts to air segments like the
"Terrorism Alert Desk" and commentaries from
far-right-winged assholes. One commentator,
Jamie Allman from KDNL-TV St. Louis was fired
after he tweeted that he was "ready to ram a hot
poker up David Hogg's ass". Hogg is the
17-year-old survivor of the Parkland shooting
who has been criticized by right-winged pundits
for calling for more gun control in America.
It's laughable that Sinclair is calling
themselves fair and balanced while their news
departments are to the right by Fox News
Channel. It's propaganda, plain and simple and
it's killing stations like WPBN. What's worse is
that through an umbrella company, Sinclair also
owns northern Michigan's ABC station, WGTU
29&8. While the FCC prohibits companies from
owning more than one TV station in a market the
size of Traverse City, companies like Sinclair
get around the ruling through fake companies
like WGTU's "owner" Chesapeake Media and shared
services agreements. Sadly, WPBN/WGTU's rivals,
CBS WWTV 9&10 and Fox WFQX 32 are also
co-owned thanks to an umbrella company and an
Under Drumpf's FCC, we could see even more
consolidation in the media and we're all gonna
pay. Sinclair thinks they're hot shit, but I
think if people learn the real truth about this
company that gives dearly to the Republicans,
they'll be flipping the channel.
Yes, CNN ain't perfect, but better them over
Sinclair. Our country needs true journalism, not
something that's fake and tawdry.
Walter Cronkite must be spinning in his grave.
