This vote will allow Sinclair broadcasting, a right leaning media company, to purchase and control local news outlets across a broader market. At the moment, they are trying to push ahead on a merger which will allow them to control 72% of local media outlets across the country. With FCC approval, of course, but this vote enables them to move forward. A close friend brought this to my attention, and I had to dig a bit to find anything on it. I feel this is bad for everyone, it seems local media is much more neutral in their reporting than mainstream.
