Here are 66 local news stations airing Sinclair’s brainwashing anti-media promo

In March, CNN’s Brian Stelter obtained internal documents sent to Sinclair Broadcast Group’s local TV news stations requiring them to film and air short promotional segments decrying “biased and false news” and accusing unnamed mainstream media figures of bias. The script, obtained by CNN, focuses on the mainstream press, attacking unspecified “national media outlets” for publishing “fake stories.” At points, the script appears to echo President Donald Trump’s attacks on press with cries of “fake news.” (Though the final version of the script, as NPR noted in an interview with a Sinclair executive about the promotional spots, no longer included “the word national … coupled to the word media.”)
