We're fighting to keep conservative bias out of our living rooms.
A proposed merger between conservative media conglomerate Sinclair Broadcast Group and Tribune Media Co. is in its final stages - which would expand Sinclair's reach to unheard of levels.
Sinclair has gained notoriety over the years for their right-leaning broadcasts, and stations owned by Sinclair are forced to air "must-run" segments which often present alarmist and politically motivated features, as The Baltimore Sun and John Oliver explain here.
The Sinclair management style means newscasters across the country are obligated to repeat the same manufactured story, without commentary or analysis.
Sinclair seeks to influence politics across the country through the spread of biased conservative media and backing conservative politicians. Even here in Maryland, Governor Larry Hogan and the state GOP have accepted over $20,000 from their Board of Directors.
The FCC can still shut down the merger, and prevent this unprecedented expansion. Join the growing list of Marylanders who oppose the merger and support a free press, free from corporate conservative propaganda.
