Trending Monday? Sinclair Broadcast group.
Sinclair owns nearly 200 local TV stations, and mandated dozens of on-air talent to read a promo bashing what it calls "fake news."
TV hosts including Jimmy Kimmel and John Oliver have pounced.. wondering how independent journalists can be forced to read a corporate script.
Others are saying this sounds like "pro-Trump" propaganda.
The President responded by tweeting out,"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."
We shared the video on our Facebook page and here's how you reacted:
It's worth pointing out, Sinclair does not own any TV stations in Hawaii. KITV's parent company is Lilly Broadcasting, and we have never been asked to use corporate-mandated stories or scripts.
Sinclair has said this is reiterating its commitment to fact-based reporting. Fake news? A commitment to journalism? Keep your thoughts coming!
