Heh. The liberals in the media have been reading from the same script for years. Some talk show hosts have been putting together examples of this for 30 years. But if it has a pro-Trump tint, this is now a scandal?
Critics are calling Sinclair’s promos pro-Trump propaganda. Now the company is defending the initiative, and calling it something much more mundane: A “corporate news journalistic responsibility promotional campaign.”
Sinclair, America’s largest operator of local TV stations, is in the spotlight after a controversial promo video went viral over the weekend.
Some staffers say they’re embarrassed by the promos and concerned about their own credibility as journalists. A few local anchors and reporters are even reacting publicly, risking the ire of management.
But Sinclair senior vice president of news Scott Livingston is defending the promos as a “well-researched journalistic initiative focused on fair and objective reporting.”
