Trump Gave Sinclair Priority Access In Exchange for Positive Coverage

Overview of this Controversy


Date Originated: December of 2016
Categories: Donald Trump
Donald Trump's campaign struck a deal with Sinclair Broadcast Group during the Presidential campaign that granted the company priority access to Trump and his inner circle in exchange for positive media coverage and a promise to run his rallies and speeches without commentary. Sinclair operates 173 television stations in 81 U.S. markets and reaches millions of American consumers every day, so the deal undoubtedly gave the Trump campaign tens of millions of dollars worth of non-critical free airtime.
