Exposing Billionaire Bias On Broadcast News

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.
