News Rivals Wrong In Attacking Sinclair

While I would expect the American Cable Association and Dish to object to Sinclair’s proposed merger with Tribune, I am surprised that Newsmax and One America News are piling on. The right-wing news operations may be worried that a much larger Sinclair will blow past them in the race to supplant Fox News as the go-to conservative channel. But it doesn’t excuse their using the regulatory processes of the FCC to try to derail the merger and stunt Sinclair’s growth.
