President Trump has a plan for our media, and it isn’t good. Trump’s using the Sinclair Group to control local news and bring his message to the masses.
The great Noam Chomsky once said, “The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum.”
Well, that sentiment is certainly true today. That’s because Trump’s trying to control the American people and solidify his power.
Trump knows he can’t do that while the free press continues to expose his every lie. So he’s trying to limit the people’s access to progressive opinions on local news.
And he’s doing that by cutting deals with the Sinclair Media Group. Meanwhile, Sinclair is working hard to surpass Fox News as the new voice of Trump.
The media group already made a deal with Jared Kushner during the campaign to feature favorable coverage of Trump. Sinclair has also expanded its reach so that it can access a larger audience than the cable news networks.
This company has ulterior motives, though. It was founded by conservatives, and their goal is to push the conservative agenda.
Sinclair has also bought out several local news outlets. And they’re forcing the local news broadcasts to feature news stories that help the Trump administration.
So Sinclair can now reach up to 72% of U.S. households. And thus the Trump media network is born.
This is outright propaganda on behalf of Trump. Sinclair is now staged to become the new “Trump TV.”
For example, journalist David Zurawick has covered local television for about thirty years. And what he sees the Sinclair Group doing outright frightens him.
Zurawick said on CNN, “Whatever the White House says, you know, President Trump believes there was voter fraud and he sets up this commission to get data from the states and the states rightfully push back because it’s very intrusive data — Boris Ephsteyn’s piece on it ends with, the states should cooperate with President Trump.”
POLL: Do you agree with Noam Chomsky?
Noam Chomsky said that the best way to control people is to limit their opinions.
But now Trump’s doing exactly that by taking control of local media companies.
Do you agree with Chomsky? Share your opinion in the poll below.
Boris Epshteyn is the Chief Political Analyst at Sinclair. He also just happens to be Russian-born.
Epshteyn’s new role is to echo Trump’s talking points on local news channels. And these channels have to play these segments no matter how ridiculous they are.
And he’s happy to help the Trump administration poison people’s minds with nonsense. Everything from phony voter fraud to fake Muslim threats are fair game.
The Trump administration is using its business ties to do the unthinkable. It’s about to take over three-fourths of our local media, and control what millions of Americans can see.
We have to warn people about what Trump is up to. So share this story on Facebook before it’s too late!
