The Sinclair Group does not own ABC. Neither do they control it.

Ah, you be right!!! I was thinking of the local Seattle ABC affiliate KOMO TV, that was a recent(?) purchase by Sinclair. Sinclair also owns ~ 40 other ABC affiliate stations, ~50 FOX stations, ~ 20 NBC stations, almost 30 CBS stations, among its burgeoning, soon to strongly top 200 TV stations across the country. Sinclair is doing lots of gobbling (up) now..... lots around the nuclear plant in the Tri-Cities of Washington state, lots in Milwaukee, WI, lots in Nashville, lots in Oklahoma City, lots in Pittsburgh, lots in Portland, OR, lots in Portland, ME, lots in Omaha, NE, lots & lots in FL, lots in Missoula, lots in Madison, WI, lots in Kearney, NE, lots in Las Vegas, lots in Green Bay, WI, lots & lots & lots & lots in southern states ...... lots & lots & lots (like 18--I can't believe that!)in Eugene, OR, & lots & lots & lots & lots.......
Thanks for helping me understand how long the Sinclair claws are. I'm sure you be knowledgeable about even longer claws on Sinclair, do ye, matey!!

They own a lot of TV and radio stations. That's their business. These stations are affiliated with a wide variety of networks, including some with ABC. Most of their investments seem to favor affiliation with FOX (about 30%).

Like usual, you are making compositional errors.

Plus, they are forcing other purchased TV stations to bias their news:
1) Sinclair, which owned seven ABC affiliates at the time, barred those stations from showing the broadcast.
2) news source of most Americans is going to be allowed to be turned into an opinion organization, an opinion machine for a very narrow, narrowly conservative point of view night after night in local communities.
3) after the 9/11 attacks, Sinclair required anchors and reporters to read messages supporting President George Bush's efforts against terrorism.
4) Sinclair mandated all its stations run a special that included clips from a distinctly one-sided documentary that questioned John Kerry's Vietnam War service.
5) Sinclair had its stations run this segment, which called the national media purveyors of fake news.
6) Sinclair sometimes forces conservative talking points into the scripts that their local news anchors read.
7) numerous examples of Sinclair stations running what are largely paid promotions masquerading as news pieces.
8)... to protect against any one company becoming too dominant, Congress has set certain caps on how many media outlets any one corporation can own in a given market, but the FCC( "don'T rump" gov't) recently changed those rules.
Under the new leadership of Trump appointee Ajit Pai, the FCC has now made it easier to approve Sinclair's expansion.
Tom Wheeler is the former chair of the FCC...."these new changes are a blow to a free and vibrant press".
8) WILLIAM BRANGHAM:.... meetings and correspondence between Ajit Pai and Sinclair executives.... about the company's influence with the Trump administration.

Sinclair stations broadcast the news network that they are affiliated with. The only news they can affect is their own local news.

Jeff Schechtman:...my guest, Lucia Graves.... her article in The Guardian: This is Sinclair, "the most dangerous US company you've never heard of."
Julian Sinclair Smith....owns Sinclair.... his four sons...have taken it....a blatantly political direction, even more so in many ways than Fox....really insisting that it's message get out through its local stations.
Lucia Graves:.... concerns.... FCC ....make it easier for Sinclair to expand its reach to 72 percent of American households.... Sinclair stations.... must run 10-minute political commentary segments..... Sinclair hired Boris Epshteyn, who's a former campaign spokesman for Donald Trump and works in the White House Press Office.... these 10-minute commentary segments sound a lot like Trump's messaging from the White House....
Jeff Schechtman: Sinclair stations did numerous interviews with Trump and zero interviews with Clinton.
Lucia Graves: Circa.... addition(s) to (Sinclair) portfolio....going to be the new Breitbart for him("don'T rump"?)..... the FCC....requires you having an actual physical studio... to be considered a local news.... that be eliminated which will make it possible for Sinclair to do a lot more nationally pushed segments from its headquarters.
Sinclair doesn't say anywhere on the station that it's Sinclair.
///////
Lucia Graves:.... Greg Gianforte's election in Montana. Ben, my colleague, was asking him a question about the GOP health care bill and the candidate got agitated and assaulted him, threw him on the ground. And Ben had a recording of all of this that was being aired nationally on The Today Show, and it was hands down the biggest political story in the state that night.... the local NBC affiliate, which had recently been bought by Sinclair, refused to air Jacob's audio recording of the incident in which he is assaulted....But the day after, there was a police report filed on my colleague's assault. Fred Smith, the Vice President of Sinclair, donated $1,000 to Greg Gianforte..... sends a very clear message that is frankly hostile to journalism.

Good we have an expert on the rw wrong-headed Sinclair Syndicate, who must be familiar with this old Sinclair news: https://www.mediamatters.org/networks-and-outlets/sinclair-broadcast-group-inc

Almost immediately after Bannon's departure from the White House and return to Breitbart.com, reports of his rumored plans for a Breitbart.com expansion emerged. In Vanity Fair, media reporter Gabriel Sherman reported that Bannon "has media ambitions to compete with Fox News from the right," potentially by forging a partnership with right-wing local news giant Sinclair Broadcast Group.
Sinclair ought to avoid the infamously toxic, hate-filled troll cesspool at all costs.

Yeah, they are so conservative that they own NBC stations all over the country. Sinclair's product is NEWS programming and that means all the super left-wing news that comes from every source on the TV and from the Tribune Newspaper group.

But then we can't expect much from a moron that couldn't tell his head from a hole in the ground.

Ah, didn't take long to find kkk(always small letters) mission statements in Sinclair Syndicate clap-trap.
https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/8/12/1689068/-Sinclair-Broadcast-News-exposed-its-white-nationalist-agenda-today
Now we know why "old sick silly sleepy sleezy slimy steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AGW denier liar whiner wake-me-up" & "old sick silly sleepy sleezy slimy steenkin' filthy vile reprobate rooting (& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AGW denier liar whiner badnight" were so adamant to deflect the news about the mission of Sinclair Syndicate. All three, "wake-me-up", "badnight" & Sinclair Syndicate probably have kkk(always small letters) leanings.
Hey, weren't "wake-me-up" & "badnight" going to duke it out? How can they go against "don'T rump" & his mission to "unite the white" & "make america white again"? Guys, "don'T rump" united the kkk(always small letters) & neo-nazis. "wake-me-up" & "badnight"....ya all gots ta get along, ya hear.

From the article:
KOMO (an ABC affiliate in Seattle)......Mark Hyman's "Behind the Headlines" episode called "Ignoring History".....the drive by minorities and liberals to remove statues celebrating Confederate "heroes" from the Civil War..... Hyman....compare the removal of statues of what were by definition traitors from taxpayer-funded government property to the destruction of archaeological treasures! Before about two years ago, KOMO never broadcasted tripe like this, but it was obvious that Sinclair Broadcast Group is forcing its subsidiaries to broadcast right-wing and white nationalist stories.
////////
I remember the article. Amidst the actions of "don'T rump" to justify the racist kkk(always small letters) & neo-nazis, KOMO was backing up "don'T rump". Yeah, the mask has been ripped off Sinclair Syndicate.
