We’re pretty sure this video was initially uploaded in 2018 by the Ted Cruz-owned sports website, Deadspin, but it’s making the rounds Saturday night and it’s just as timely as ever. We’re not sure what President Trump said in April of 2018 for Sinclair Broadcasting to send out this script, but it could just as easily be about the media’s “fact-checking” of voting irregularities in the 2020 election.
We think left-leaning Deadspin was trying to make a point about how “conservative” Sinclair had “turned its news anchors into soldiers in Trump’s war on the media,” but it’s good to look at this through fresh eyes after seeing Fox News’ coverage on election night.

All Sinclair owned TV stations in that clip.
Sinclair is the 2nd largest owner of TV stations behind Nexstar Broadcasting.

Near as I can tell, these are all @WeAreSinclair stations and they directed their news rooms to read this quite awhile back. The Local 12 station, for instance, features anchor Rob Braun who retired in 2019.

Bonus points to the prompter puppets who added hand emphasis and breath draws/ramp downs during key words to drive it home. #rowofcabbages

They all got the same memo…???

Why does mainstream media report the exact same thing, at the same time, in the same order using the exact same words?
Just 3 news agencies:
– Associated Press (AP)
Reuters, AP, AFP are left leaning, biased and a propaganda tool of the globalist establishment. pic.twitter.com/iGeFeDb0fx

If you didn’t believe in some larger force controllin the #MSM, this video will change your mind. I wonder who wrote the script? What appears to be “independent” news stations, many are, in fact, controlled by a few corporations. Who controls the corporations? It’s not a secret.

Wow it’s almost like every “news media organization” is being manipulated by the same person/people. That can’t be a thing though right?

A "free press" that follows a script rather than having any individual thought. THAT is what "is extremely dangerous to our democracy."

I believe this is an older video from a few years ago. Still accurate today if so
