9. WLOS-very Repub leaning due to Sinclair Broadcasting ownership
Despite mostly Dem anchors, they toe the Repub leaning line due to ownership by Sinclair-the outfit that forced them to show the anti-Kerry swiftboat attack movie despite huge a huge outcry of protests by local Dems 8 years ago. This year they made a point to show the entire Romney event here, which they have never done for a prominent Dem.
Every time they do run a story at all favorable to Dems they show even more coverage of the Repub counter points of view from local Tea Party fanatics downplaying anything at all positive for Dems. I prefer NBC channel from Greenville/Spartanburg that also covers Western N Carolina
Every time I go onto WLOS's website homepage, their front page features a prominent box of right wing Newsmax (not ABC) threads to link to even though they are ABC affiliate. According to them, the foreign policy debate was a tie (no mention of viewer polls all giving a win to Obama) and all polls show Romney ahead or tied.
