Thanks to a viral video created by Deadspin, we can now easily see the power Sinclair Broadcast Group possesses when they force their local news stations to spread propaganda that serves the Trump Administration’s dangerous agenda.
If the FCC allows the Sinclair-Tribune merger to go through, Sinclair would reach 70% of U.S. households. This would greatly expand their ability to continue to manipulate Americans through one-sided propaganda delivered by the trusted voice of their local newscasters, just like the Deadspin video reveals.
The consequences this could have on LGBTQ news coverage -- or any other stories that do not match the Trump Administration’s agenda -- are frightening. We have already seen Sinclair use their platform to promote fear and hatred towards Muslims and other communities we lock arms with. We need you to help stop it.
Add your name! Tell the FCC you’re against the Sinclair-Tribune merger and the conservative propaganda they’re forcing local news to report.
