In the latest instance of retro viral warfare information style, media conglomerate Sinclair unleashed their own version of classic Ransomwear directed at news personnel across the nation requiring that company owned television stations air conservative features to buoy the current majority of leftist content.
According to the New York Times, the controversial policy has caused a virtual upheaval in newsrooms across the nation, as staff members have taken forthright and subversive actions to circumnavigating the company directive. Ironically, the deliberate sabotage of right leaning pre-produced segments or what Sinclair terms as “must-runs” is a nuclear mushroom cloud resounding indication that the urban myth of widespread epidemic liberalism in newsrooms is clearly a disturbing reality.
The majority of liberals can handle one and only viewpoint, their own, and when a belief system is publicly introduced that falls outside of their comfortable spectrum, the role of the martyr is a natural progression in the pathway to the victimhood. Evidently, employees involved with programming at certain Sinclair TV stations aired the required packages during lulls in viewership and attempted to create confusion and hide the content by obscuring the segments with advertisements.
Of course, the NY Times is using the current inferno on the battle ground between employees and corporation as a vehicle to perpetuate the fear generated by the media giant in possibly gaining a toehold in the top three media markets in the nation. Sinclair, which currently owns 173 broadcast properties is apparently engaged in the process of acquiring Tribune Media, which would give the company a monumental imprint highlighted by a noticeable presence in New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Interestingly, critics of the company and beleaguered employees claim that policy of instilling bits and pieces of conservative programming is akin to launching a “right leaning agenda.”
The blatant and desperate white knuckled approach to staunching the conservative viewpoint at all costs was on full display in 2013, as the local newspaper in Seattle, The Seattle Times, featured a disparaging column after the corporation’s purchase of local affiliate KOMO-TV (Readers of Liberty Park Press have full disclosure to the leftist tactics of the Seattle Times in providing little to no balance in reporting on hot button issues or opeds). Naturally, Sinclair retaliated and utilized its newly acquired investigative team to air a report on the print industry gravitating to the realm of the obsolete.
Sinclair officials claim that the infusion of strategic conservative content will provide more balance for audiences and help in the fight against “fake news.” Programming such as “Terrorism Alert Desk” removes the politics from the reality of a dark cloud of violence which has already engulfed areas of Europe in an ideological battle for ultimate power, hidden under the guise of religion. Opponents claim that content tainted by leaning too far one way, is of questionable quality and viewer polls are constructed of persuasive language. Sound familiar?
