This is NUTS!!! ICYMI: America's Largest Local TV Owner Turned Hundreds Of News Anchors Into Robotic Donald Trump Supporter Drones!

If you were in one of nearly 200 television markets across the United States this weekend, you might have noticed an… um… interesting message come across the screen from your set of local TV anchors.

The segment — which you can see in a fully jumbled version (above) — was from local television news stations owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group, a right-leaning entity that wanted its news anchors to parrot Donald Trump's "fake news" complaints of the past couple years.

The script and talking points in the clip in question center around news anchors telling viewers how concerned they are about "the troubling trend of irresponsible, one-sided news stories plaguing our country," and it should concern the hell out of you considering it's a direct shout-out from Trump sycophants to their dear leader in the President's continuous fight against CNN and pretty much anyone else who dares challenge him.

Of course, this isn't the first time we've seen Sinclair Broadcast Group do some seriously shady, Trump-loving shit.

Take, for example, this particularly memorable John Oliver piece (below) about the right-wing media conglomerate dead-set on pushing right-wing propaganda to people through local news outlets:

Listen up, Snowflakes!!!

John Oliver put a much needed spotlight on a growing epidemic in local news stations across the country: conservatism in sheep's clothing!

The main segment of Sunday's Last Week Tonight was dedicated to explaining how of media giant Sinclair Broadcast Group is injecting right-wing talking points into your local news coverage.

The company now controls 173 TV stations in 81 markets across the nation, which brings in more viewership than any current primetime show on Fox News.

The bad part of this local news monopoly? Oliver says Sinclair can "sometimes dictate the content of your local newscast" by "injecting Fox-worthy content into the mouths of your local news anchors."

Basically, this media giant — whose right-wing chief political analyst is a former Donald Trump advisor — is tipping the scales of balanced coverage in the country's trustworthy local news teams to the far right, and no one even realizes it!

Yikes! Ch-ch-check out the clip (below) to see Oliver explain the local news crisis.
