Sinclair Pushing Forward Calling Out "Fake News"..

Seems Sinclair Broadcasting continues to be a shill for the Trump administration.  It has produced a 4 minute video attacking CNN.  What's really ashame is that Sinclair directs its stations, including KATV Channel 7... to carry these videos...from former Trump aide Boris Epshteyn.  So much for tuning into local news for just the news huh?  Sinclair is doing some heavy sucking up to trump for that merger with Tribune to go through..

How pathetic.  And yes KATV has anchors featured in the videos....
