Re: “WREG to Be Acquired by Conservative Sinclair Broadcast Group

Because news agencies now fall into political/ideological niches, one has to be a more intelligent digester of the news. It starts with understanding WHAT you're watching. You cannot get all your news from ONE source. You have to switch around. I suggest you switch around WHILE breaking news is happening. I am continually switching between CNN, FoxNews and MSNBC. It's fascinating how differently they approach a topic. For instance, when the news broke that former (fired) National Security Adviser Michael Flynn only agreed to testify if he was granted immunity (unquestionably, a big story), if you were watching FoxNews at the time, you wouldn't even know that that story had broke. CNN and MSNBC were all over it. Yet, on FoxNews ... not a peep? Why? Is it because FoxNews didn't know about the event. No! It takes time to figure out how you're going to spin this into not-a-bad-thing. And, of course, that's EXACTLY how they spun it. To the Trump supporters: Are you sick of winning, yet?
