Top Democrat Senators Want to Shut Down Sinclair Broadcast Group

We are told that the current condition of the GOP will result in a blue wave in November. Let’s hope not. An alarming letter from top Democrat Senators to the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission regarding Sinclair Broadcast Group indicates what is a stake.

Sinclair is the largest operator of television stations in the USA in terms of total coverage and number of stations. It is perceived as right of center in its orientation, so Democrats want the FCC to pull its broadcasting licenses.

The letter was signed by familiar characters including Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and Patty Murray. It applies pressure on the FCC to pull the plug on Sinclair on the vague grounds that it has been “distorting news.” To the radicalized Democrat Party, anything to the right of PBS is a distortion.

The sanctimonious rhetoric is both hilariously hypocritical and terrifying. The authors repeatedly cite the First Amendment while proclaiming that Sinclair must be silenced “to serve the public interest.” It leaves no doubt that these top Democrats have zero respect for the right to express views inconsistent with their ideology. When they have the leverage, they will impose their will.
