    Sinclair has a continuing history of "fake new".

    "...over the course of roughly six months last year, Sinclair Broadcasting aired sponsored pay-for-play programming on 77 different stations 1,723 times.
    Some of this content was dressed up like real news but made no mention of who paid for it to be put on the air. In an era where true facts too often are derided as fake news,
    Moreover, it is a clear violation of Sections 317 and 507 of the Communications Act, as well as Section 73.1212 of the Commission’s rules. "
