The US President Donald Trump has criticized the broadcast news media and called them ‘Fakers’. He tweeted that the ‘fakers’ at CNN, NBC, ABC and CBC should be awarded for their fictional work.
Trump backed the Sinclair Broadcast Group after news reports about a video of dozens of Sinclair news anchors reading a script expressing concern about ‘fake stories’.
The Fake News Networks, those that knowingly have a sick and biased AGENDA, are worried about the competition and quality of Sinclair Broadcast. The “Fakers” at CNN, NBC, ABC & CBS have done so much dishonest reporting that they should only be allowed to get awards for fiction!

Sinclair owns nearly 200 local TV stations and the anchors were suggested to read a statement expressing concern about “one-sided news stories plaguing the country.”
