News corporations are so scared of independent research/journalism they are requiring local news stations/reporters to read their script calling for people to quit listening to the alternative sources and just stay glued to our narratives we feed you. The hypocrisy here is laughable.
Sinclair news inc. so concerned about alternative news sources they are requiring anchors to read new promo slamming ‘one-sided news stories’
“Unfortunately, some members of the national media are using their platforms to push their own personal bias and agenda to control ‘exactly what people think’ … This is extremely dangerous to our democracy.”
The script then has anchors say they “understand Truth is neither politically ‘left or right.’”
“Our commitment to factual reporting is the foundation of our credibility, now more than ever,” the script reads.
CNN reports instructions accompanying the promo script direct anchors to read the scripts “exactly as they are written.” Local stations are also instructed to run the promos as frequently as possible “to create maximum reach and frequency,” and are told to run the promos “using news time, not commercial time.”
The instructions for the promos also direct anchors to dress in “jewel tones” and avoid the colors red, blue and purple.
“The goal is to look apolitical, neutral, nonpartisan yet professional,” the instructions read, according to CNN.
