At first, I thought maybe it was a subtle rebellion against KOMO’s parent company, the Sinclair Broadcast Group. Sinclair—which is controlled by David Denison Smith, the son of the company’s founder—is an arch-conservative media giant. The company currently owns and operates 193 television stations that reach into 40 percent of households across the U.S., and their empire could soon grow much larger: The Federal Communications Commission is currently considering a nearly $4 billion dollar bid from Sinclair to purchase the Tribune Media Company, which would increase Sinclair’s market share to 233 television stations in 108 U.S. markets.

I'm just amazed at how many I talk with don't even know about Sinclair. Who the heck covers the real news these days????

I felt that way before the election when none of my well educated and internet connected friend knew about Steven Bannon and Alex Jones At least we can thank Trump about the fact that he exposed the debt of fascism in this country and people are now aware of these players
