Stop the monopolistic Sinclair merger

United States Congress

There’s definitely a danger to our democracy here – but it’s coming from Sinclair Broadcasting. They’re already the largest owner of local TV stations in the country, but now they’re trying to get even bigger – which would help them expand their reach even further, and replace local, independent coverage with mass-produced, ideological content dictated from corporate headquarters.

If Sinclair is successful in its bid to purchase the Tribune Media, it would go from 173 stations to 230, with many in major markets like Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago.

That’d be a massive blow against independent local media -- Sinclair’s right-wing ownership often requires its statements to air “must-run” opinion segments that echo conservative talking points -- even over the objections of local journalists.

Ajit Pai has shown he’ll bend the rules to move this merger through -- and we need to show Congress that we won’t let him get away with it. We need to put MASSIVE pressure on the FCC to block this monopolistic merger -- add your name today.
