    Meanwhile, we are obsessing over the Second Amendment.

    Unwatchable. And also, the hearing part is bad too.

    Spit out the marbles, Boris.

    I can handle this garbage when it flies under the Fox banner. What is terrifying is seeing the NBC and CBS logos. Can't the parent networks do anything?

    And some people here question why I fear for the First Amendment.

    In the case of the Sinclair stations, they are merely affiliates of the various major networks, not owned & operated outlets. The big thing with Sinclair is their pending deal to buy Tribune Media, which will extend their reach to 70% of the US population. That could be, to re-use their own parrot-phrase, "extremely dangerous to our democracy."

    Tribune files $1 billion suit against Sinclair, scraps deal | Bloomberg News

    Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. saw its bid to become a nationwide powerhouse collapse after its would-be partner, Tribune Media Co., withdrew from a planned $3.9 billion merger that drew the ire of regulators.

    Tribune blamed Sinclair and filed a $1 billion lawsuit that claimed the broadcaster "engaged in belligerent and unnecessarily protracted negotiations" with antitrust officials and with the FCC. The blow sent Sinclair's shares tumbling as much as 5.4 percent.

    "Regulatory approval should not have been hard to come by," Tribune said in the complaint filed Thursday in Delaware Chancery Court. "Sinclair fought, threatened, insulted, and misled regulators in a misguided and ultimately unsuccessful attempt to retain control over stations that it was obligated to sell."
