Sinclair Tells Stations To Air Media-Bashing Promos
Sinclair tells stations to air media-bashing promos – and the criticism goes viral.
Sinclair Broadcast Group’s corporate mandates are exacerbating tensions between the company’s local stations and its management.
Journalists in local US markets are chafing at the company’s requirements, including a new promotional campaign that echoes President Donald Trump’s anti-media rhetoric.
The promos, first reported by CNNMoney last month, went viral over the weekend after Deadspin edited dozens of them together to show how anchors across the country were told to read the same script.
