So, the leftists don't like Fox, they don't like Sinclair, they don't like Rupert Murdock. Whom to turn to? NBC, CNN, CBS and ABC? They are ALL left-wing. So the balance is STILL hugely lopsided in favour of leftists!!!!

No, it's not the leftists. It's likely the majority who do not wish to
hear constant lies and blatant falsehoods told on Fox Fake.

It's also very strange to force local news anchors to make blantantly
right-wing statements. It ain't American. I'm absolutely certain that
non-libs and non-conserves are also very concerned about it.

NBC, CNN, CBS and ABC don't blatantly lie, so I guess those you label
"leftists" are right and you are wrong. The lopsideness is because Fox
Fake is in no way fair or balanced and only deluded people would believe
such tripe. There's very little reason to watch Fox Fake, unless you
want to understand the basis of Trump's delusional tweets and executive
decisions.

The left doesn't like lies, so what you said in itself is a lie.

Oh for fuck's sake. CNN is a group of satellite channels that DO NOT
pretend to be local in any way, despite Ed's lies about CNN in another
thread. NBC, CBS, and ABC aren't instructing their O&Os to present
national commentary as if it's local commentary.

Also, Sinclair owns affiliates of the national networks. It's just not
comparable.

There shouldn't be this much ownership consolidation by any single
party. Quite frankly, it was absolutely outrageous when Congress allowed
station groups owned by national networks to be larger than 5 O&Os.

Why are you apologizing for monopolization attempts, Rich?

What difference does it make if the network is local, national or global?

The employees of Sinclair, CNN, FOX, Huffington Post, etc. all say what their
bosses tell them to say and if they go off the reservation and start babbling
about whatever the fuck they want, they’ll be fired.

A network is never local, dipshit, and local news never comes from the
network. Do ordinary concepts in broadcasting somehow elude you?

I have corrected you on this numerous times but you continue to repeat
the very same lie.

News programs are regularly criticized for misrepresenting commentary as
a straight news segment, failing to disclose that news segments are
actually paid for by a sponsor, and for failing to disclose that a
segment was not produced by them but they got it from somewhere else.

Sinclair ups the ante by requiring that a national commentary piece be
read by a local news reporter as if it's a news story and not commentary.

It's unfortunate that you can't tell what's wrong here. Actually, I
think you understand perfectly well and are lying about it.

Shouldn't you be careful about mentioning names like that where you live?
