We urgently need your help to stop this corporate takeover of local media. Sinclair Broadcast Group, the largest owner of local TV stations in the country, wants to get even bigger by buying the Tribune Media Group.
But we know that the only way that Donald Trump’s pro-corporate FCC will do the right thing is if members of Congress put pressure on them -- and lawmakers will only do that if they hear from you.
We need to put MASSIVE pressure on the FCC to block this monopolistic merger. Please tell your members of Congress how much you oppose the Sinclair deal.
If Sinclair is successful in its bid to purchase the Tribune Media Group, it would go from 173 stations to 215, with many in major markets like Los Angeles, New York City and Chicago. That’d be a massive blow against independent local media -- Sinclair’s right-wing ownership often requires its stations to air “must-run” opinion segments that echo Team Trump’s talking points -- even over the objections of local journalists.
