Wondering whether your local television news outlet gives you accurate and balanced information? Probably not, if you’re watching a station owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group. The company owns almost 200 local television stations throughout the country, many in rural America. Sinclair has a history of forcing its reporters to present biased news created by the corporate office rather than coverage of local events.  In the following article, Sheelah Kolhatkarprovides an excellent introduction to the company that controls what so many of us see on our local news. It’s long, but well worth the read. https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2018/10/22/the-growth-of-sinclairs-conservative-media-empire
