Radio and TV stations are bound by FCC regulations, but are some bending the rules to promote political views and candidates?
Sinclair Broadcasting had only one commentator, Boris Epstheyn who used to work for the Trump campaign and was briefly in the administration. He is now their chief political commentator. This gave just one editorial voice, and this gave no editorial balance.
Pam Vogel from Media Matters joined Thom Hartmann to talk about the fairness doctrine and what Sinclair Broadcasting is doing.
The Thom Hartmann Program is the leading progressive political talk radio show for political news and comments about Government politics. Whether Liberal or Conservative, Thom speaks with special guests and callers from all over the globe about the topics that matter.
Full episodes of The TH Program air on Free Speech TV every weekday
Monday- Friday 12pm-3pm ET
