STOP TRUMP TV: Sinclair-Tribune Merger Tomorrow!

WHAT TO DO TO TRY STOP THE MERGER:

(Daily Kos) The FCC is currently taking public comments regarding the Sinclair-Tribune merger, but we only have until TOMORROW, July 12, to submit them. Can you take a few minutes today to protest the merger?

Submit your comment today for proceeding number 17-179 to help stop Trump TV.

https://www.fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express

To submit your comment, simply enter the proceeding number (17-179) and fill out your information.* Not sure what to say? Here’s a comment that you can use:

“I urge the FCC to deny the merger petition between Sinclair Broadcast Group and Tribune Media. Sinclair is already the country's largest broadcast company and if merged with Tribune Media, they would own stations that reach 72% of American households -- consolidating the power to decide what information reaches us into the hands of a powerful few. Sinclair has a history of forcing local stations to air politically biased segments produced at their corporate headquarters rather than news that reflects the concerns and interests of the communities. I urge you to reject the Sinclair-Tribune merger.”

12. Sinclair currently doesn't own a station in market #24

However, should this merger pass, they will.

NBC Charlotte (WCNC) generally the number #3 station in local news in a 5 broadcast (3, 9, 18, 36, & 46) and 1 cable news (Spectrum News) organization market. As a general rule, if you aren't WBTV 3 CBS or WSOC 9 ABC, you don't compete for the highest ratings due to heritage dial positions.

14. Good on you urbanhermit!

Lake Coeur d'Alene was one of the most beautiful, peaceful places I'd ever seen, and I've travelled a fair amount.
