Where Sinclair Owns the Local News

Last week Deadspin created a video of news anchors across the United States reading the exact same script about the "one-sided news" in America. The video effectively revealed the dangers of allowing the Sinclair Broadcast Group to continue to vacuum up local television stations across America.

The company now owns 193 local television stations. Vox has released an interactive map which show where these Sinclair owned local television stations operate. The map in Sinclair’s pro-Trump news is taking over local TV allows you to select a state and then a media market within that state to find out how many stations Sinclair owns locally. The map also reveals the names of those local television stations and the number of people those stations serve.
