Die Stationen sind weit verstreut, jedoch in stark konservativen Gebieten gehäuft.
Many of the stations it runs are affiliates of other national networks, such as WKEF, an ABC affiliate in Dayton, Ohio, and KOKH, a Fox affiliate in Oklahoma City, and are therefore more widely known by those associations. Sinclair owns or operates 59 Fox affiliates, 41 ABC affiliates, 30 CBS affiliates, 25 NBC affiliates, nine Univision affiliates and others, and it also has its own network, Comet, according to its website.
Its stations are clustered in predominantly conservative areas of the country, according to an analysis of the company’s markets by The Washington Post’s Philip Bump: The broadcast areas of Sinclair stations voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton by a 19-point margin, on average.
Sinclair has been spotlighted for injecting right-leaning coverage and commentary on national issues into its local broadcasts since well before its “fake stories” advisory became public, making it unique in the world of broadcast television, which is less encumbered by the partisanship that marks cable networks such as Fox News Channel and MSNBC.
While other station owners typically use “must-run” segments to push station promotions, Sinclair has used required programming to push conservative-leaning stances into its local broadcasts.
“The must-runs look like they are part of the news,” David Twedell, business manager of a local camera workers’ union in Seattle, told The Washington Post. “And they’re clearly not.”

Kushner said the agreement with Sinclair, which owns television stations across the country in many swing states and often packages news for their affiliates to run, gave them more access to Trump and the campaign, according to six people who heard his remarks.
In exchange, Sinclair would broadcast their Trump interviews across the country without commentary, Kushner said. Kushner highlighted that Sinclair, in states like Ohio, reaches a much wider audience — around 250,000 listeners — than networks like CNN, which reach somewhere around 30,000.

Oder auf YT.
Gekaufte Sender multiplizieren zuverlässig und ohne Kritik die Regierungsmeinung. Es ist wahrhaftig der gleichgeschaltete Big Brother der Konservativen und der Trumps, um die Gehirne zu waschen. Gleichgeschaltete Massenmanipulation im real existierenden Kapitalismus ohne dass es den Konsumenten bewusst ist.
