Sinclair Broadcast Group is a right-wing corporation that owns around 200 TV stations that reach 40% of U.S. households and takes their talking points directly from the Trump administration. With their uncritical parroting of half-truths, misinformation, and outright lies, Sinclair furthers the white supremacists rhetoric of the current administration and creates toxic media narratives that are destructive to Black communities.
Sinclair Broadcast Group has often been compared to Fox News, but Sinclair is much more dangerous. Unlike Fox News, where some people know the content is biased, Sinclair is forcing trusted local anchors to parrot Fox-type content that undermines trust in the rest of the media and promotes damaging stereotypes. And with 3 out of 4 U.S. adults regularly consuming local news, millions of people are unknowingly peppered with pro-Trump propaganda. But, just like Fox News, Sinclair Broadcast is vulnerable to pressure from their core advertisers. As we’ve done so many times in the past - like with Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly - we can hold advertisers accountable for funding Sinclair’s pro-Trump propaganda.
Tell local advertisers to stop supporting pro-Trump propaganda and cut ties with Sinclair Broadcast!
