    Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai is under investigation by the agency's independent watchdog over decisions that benefit Sinclair Broadcasting. FCC Inspector General (IG) David Hunt agreed to conduct the investigation after it was requested in November 2017 by two Democratic lawmakers.

    "The publicly available evidence suggests a pattern of abuse where Sinclair forces its local stations to air pro-Trump messages in exchange for policy favors from the Trump administration and its FCC chairman," Free Press Deputy Director and Senior Counsel Jessica González said.

    Not the first I’ve heard of this, but recently reports on both MSNBC and NPR, where the corporate office is feeding local stations statements about “fake” news that they feel harms Trump. Never mind the critical stuff is mostly real news, or if Trump is busy feeding you his share of fake news. :oops:
