Sinclair Is Hard Right Wing TV, But Still Knows Better Than To Hire O'Reilly
November 1, 2017

Cue the violins, Bill O'Reilly isn't "moving" to Sinclair Broadcasting. And sorry, Bill, speaking as a podcaster myself, you can't call yourself "employed" and "moving" to a Fox News "competitor" when you're recording out of your house.

Especially when everyone knows you did $32 million dollars worth of damage to a female employee of Fox. Dateline:

During a conference call with Wall Street analysts, Sinclair Broadcast Group CEO Chris Ripley fielded a question about recent press accounts that the company has been negotiating with former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.

“We get approached by people all the time, which is probably where these reports were coming from,” Ripley said. “He did approach us. We do not have any interest in hiring him.”

No one wants you, Bill.

Meanwhile, Sinclair has their own problem, that we see them and know what they're up to: News Sports and Weather with an unhealthy dose of Right Wing propaganda through your local news channel. Senator Dick Durbin of Illinois is on it:

Whether or not fairness in broadcasting will prevail over huge money this time is doubtful. But we see Sinclair and will call them out daily until their menace is the story. We did it with Bill O'Reilly.

Can you help us out?
