    President Donald Trump said he regrets the tone he has used during his first two years in office during an exclusive interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group. "I would like to have a much softer tone. I feel to a certain extent I have no choice, but maybe I do," Trump said. He attributed his tone during his first two years in office to wanting to get things done on his agenda, adding that he could have been softer in his delivery. He said after the midterm election his tone is something he will be working on and he hopes there...

    A convicted felon who has claimed that he had gay sex with President Barack Obama is running to become mayor of a Florida town. Larry Sinclair gave a speech at the National Press Club in 2008, while Obama was running for President, alleging that the then-Senator bought and smoked cocaine and had sex with him in 1999.  Sinclair, who has served prison time in Arizona, Florida and Colorado for forgery, fraud and larceny, is now campaigning to win the mayor’s seat in Cocoa, a town of around 19,000 people, in the November 6 election. The South Carolina native has...
  • Oh My: Sinclair Broadcast Group Making A Play For Hannity?

    I say this no more than half-jokingly: The only proper replacement for Hannity at 9 p.m. on Fox would be Trump broadcasting live from the White House for an hour, riffing on whatever he wants to riff on. A nightly national rally, five nights a week.Well, four nights. Hosts often get Fridays off, especially during the summer. Jared could sit in for him.Hannity is supposedly signed at Fox through 2020, which means one of two things is true. It could be that Sinclair is thinking long-term here. They’re plotting to build a national competitor to Fox but it won’t...

    Last year, the Sinclair Broadcasting Group agreed to acquire the Tribune Media Company. Since then the competitors of free-to-the-home broadcast television have been among the loudest voices crying "the sky is falling," and the government -- the FCC and DOJ -- should deny approval of the merger. This chorus has been joined by adversaries wishing to create political division, and seeking to pull the power-levers of government to have Sinclair "investigated" for "bias" and claims of "fake news." Let's get some context and perspective. Free-to-the-home television in America, one of the nation's most heavily regulated industries, is in a fight...

    Townhall.com ^ | April 6, 2018 | David Harsanyi
    Last month, news anchors at Sinclair Broadcast Group's TV stations were required to read a script critical of "fake stories" and general bias in the major news networks. Because some of the phrasing mirrored President Donald Trump's overcooked critique of liberal media outlets, the story triggered widespread and overwrought warnings about authoritarianism and the rise of state-run media. It's true that Sinclair, the largest owner of U.S. TV stations, would have been better off following the lead of the big outlets: hiring and working with people who subscribe to the same worldview and then simply letting them do their thing....

    Syracuse TV anchor Michael Benny has broken his silence on the controversy surrounding a script he read on CNY Central for station owner Sinclair Broadcast Group. Benny and Allison Bybee appear in a video compilation showing TV anchors at Sinclair-owned stations across the country in a promo echoing President Donald Trump's constant attacks on "fake news" media. Critics say it reflects the company's right-wing agenda without disclosing a political bias.... For days, CNY Central declined to comment, but Benny finally spoke out in a lengthy Facebook post on Wednesday night. "Recently, my boss came to me with a script for...

    I dont know why Sinclair execs are even defensive about what they are doing. Its commendable. There should be more of it. Any media organization not wholeheartedly committed to such standards will, through mere momentum, drift left along with the rest of the media culture. The journalist pool is dominated by the left. It has been for many decades. So, if a network seeks to swim against that tide, it must swim hard, consistently, make its standards clear, choose its employees carefully. I make no apologies as the founder, chief executive officer and editor of WND. We will continue to...

    Liberals never complained when the news was controlled by a handful of outlets all spouting the same left-wing line. To the contrary, just last week, Barack Obama waxed nostalgic over those good old days: It used to be in the United States that there were three television stations, basically everybody watched the same thing, everybody got their news from the same sources, so everybody more or less had a similar view of the world. But now that the liberal monopoly of the media has been broken, suddenly the left is outraged and appalled. Todays opening segment of Morning Joe was...

    Sinclairs two stations in Portland, Maine are making headlines for their must run segments. The Press Herald posted a story over the weekend that described the stations as being under fire for pro-Trump political segments that run on WGME and WPFO. A politically independent viewer, Marc McCutcheon, described the experience of watching the must-runs as surreal, extremely jarring and so out of place with the friendly, local broadcast from news people Ive come to trust over the years. There was no rebuttal, no context, no alternate point of view a situation he found concerning. According to the Herald: WGME-TV...

    Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. is buying Tribune Media Co. for about $3.9 billion, a deal made possible after the U.S. Federal Communications Commission voted last month to ease a limit on TV-station ownership in the U.S. Sinclair will pay $43.50 a share to gain Tribune TV stations in big media markets like New York, Chicago and Miami, strengthening its hand in negotiations with pay-TV distributors and major broadcast networks like 21st Century Fox Inc. The marriage of Sinclair and Tribune, two of the largest local TV station owners in the U.S., creates a U.S. broadcasting behemoth to face down online...

    Sinclair Chairman Claims Entire Print Media Has No Credibility By Olivia Nuzzi David Smith, the executive chairman of Sinclair Broadcast Group, said he dislikes and fundamentally distrusts the print media, which he believes serves no real purpose. In emails to New York, Smith said that print as in newspapers and magazines is a reality-distorting tool of leftists. Print media, he said, has no credibility and no relevance. I must tell that in all the 45 plus years I have been in the media business I have never seen a single article about us that is reflective of reality...

    The man, who once claimed without evidence to have had sex with former President Barack Obama, is now livid the media and public are believing adult film star Stormy Daniels’ relationship with President Donald Trump. Larry Sinclair, a 50-something-year-old man, alleged he had sexual relations with Obama in 1999. The story included a limousine, cocaine and a host of other interesting tidbits. There are few reports of the incident because Sinclair could never provide hard evidence, and he has a very long rap sheet. News broke in early January that Trump’s lawyer paid Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford,...

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 23, 2018
    A man who claimed without evidence that he had sex with former President Barack Obama says the media is showing a sickening double standard with coverage of an alleged affair between President Trump and porn star Stormy Daniels. Larry Sinclairs allegations involving Obama, cocaine, and a limo set in 1999, when Obama was a state senator failed to gain broad coverage for a variety of reasons, including lack of corroboration and Sinclairs record of crimes involving deceit. But Sinclair says the media is giving too much attention and too little skepticism to claims of a 2006 affair between...

    Aug. 4, 2018, will be the first time that Illinois will commemorate the date as Barack Obama Day. Illinois General Assembly passed a law that would give Obama an official designation on his birthday. The supporters in Springfield originally wanted to make the day an official state holiday in which all non-vital state services would close. This drew opposition from lawmakers such as state Rep. Mark Batinick, R-Plainfield, who thinks the state couldnt afford to give state workers yet another paid holiday.
