Alternet is running a story that further documents the crookedness of Sinclair Broadcast Group, charging that the company doesn’t merely slant hard-right, but that management is mostly only interested in covering “news” that directly affects the top dogs’ pocketbooks:
One such staffer says that Sinclair Vice President J. Duncan Smith asked Craig Demchak to take on the story. “Duncan comes in and says: ‘Craig, we need this story, it’s affecting my property. We’ve got to slam these people,Â’” recalls that person. “He was told ‘This is destroying my property, we’ve got to stop it.’ If it had been anybody else’s property, would they be sending the helicopter there to see it? No way in hell.”
