Count President Trump among the supporters of Sinclair’s controversial new promotional campaign.
“Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC,” Trump tweeted this morning.
Critics of the campaign, which features dozens of anchors at many of Sinclair’s stations across the country, reading the exact same script.
In the promo, the local anchors call out “one-sided news stories,” and accuse “some media outlets” of publishing “fake stories without checking facts first.” The script echos Trump’s chief complaints of media outlets he doesn’t like.
So funny to watch Fake News Networks, among the most dishonest groups of people I have ever dealt with, criticize Sinclair Broadcasting for being biased. Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC, which is a total joke.
