A video created by Deadspin caused quite the stir when it revealed the reality of the fake news epidemic in America. According to the president, every major media outlet outside of Fox News is “Fake News,” and Americans shouldn’t believe these outlets that have been around for decades and are trusted by millions of people around the world.
The Deadspin video exposes the right’s control over Sinclair-owned media outlets that primarily report local news throughout the country. After Deadspin’s video spread, the president posted a tweet in which he advocated Sinclair Broadcast Group.
Trump wrote, “So funny to watch Fake News Networks, among the most dishonest groups of people I have ever dealt with, criticize Sinclair Broadcasting for being biased.” He added, “Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC, which is a total joke.”
Mary Nam, an anchor for the Seattle-based KOMO 4, fired back in a tweet that has since gone viral. She wrote to Trump: “Actually, this isn’t funny at all.”
She continued, “None of it. When media giants gobble up local news stations, there are repercussions. And since you brought it up first this morning, will your admin green light the Tribune buyout?”

None of it.

witter users are currently thanking Nam for her integrity.
Deadspin compiled video footage of Sinclair news anchors reading identical statements that censure mainstream media outlets for being “extremely dangerous to our democracy” since they are anti-Trump.
