Trump Rails Against ‘CNN, NBC, ABC & CBS’ in Defense of Sinclair: They ‘Have a Sick and Biased Agenda’


President Donald Trump continued his broadside on the mainstream media in defense of Sinclair Broadcasting on Tuesday morning, tweeting that cable news networks are afraid of the competition it poses.

No doubt, Trump has tuned in this morning to the morning shows’s continued coverage of the backlash to Sinclair’s must-run promos for local networks decrying “fake stories” on “some media outlets.”

“The Fake News Networks, those that knowingly have a sick and biased AGENDA, are worried about the competition and quality of Sinclair Broadcast,” Trump tweeted. “The ‘Fakers’ at CNN, NBC, ABC & CBS have done so much dishonest reporting that they should only be allowed to get awards for fiction!”

On Monday Trump railed against the negative coverage Sinclair was receiving, calling the “Fake News Networks” the “most dishonest groups of people I have ever dealt with.”

“Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC, which is a total joke,” he added.
