I liked CNN's montage of different anchors repeating like a bunch of parrots the same script.

I think someone could add some music to enhance it. I see some kind of award.

Maybe White House - The Reality Show creator Mr Trump would host an award ceremony and give himself some great statue and ad lib something along the lines of see news anchors everywhere love him ... all to music

My God America has lost its mind ... we are the Twilight Zone

You know that nightmare everyone has had at one time or another about forgetting that you had a final exam in a particularly significant class, or standing in front of a crowd, only to realize you forgot to put clothes on? Well, I have this recurring nightmare that Donald Trump got elected President and we live in this insane, chaotic dystopia. Then I fall asleep.

A liberal consumer watchdog group purchased airtime on channels owned by Sinclair Broadcasting Group in order to bash the company for the recent anti-media promos they forced local anchors to record for their stations.

Allied Progress purchased a “six-figure ad buy” to run messages against the company on four of their own stations. Sinclair accepted the ad buy, the group is interested in airtime from WJLA in Washington, D.C., KDSM in Des Moines, KOMO in Seattle, and WBFF in Baltimore.

Viewers will see a 15-second defense of Sinclair produced by Sinclair, then 30 seconds of criticism, then another 15-second defense produced Sinclair, as follows:

Quote:
“This station, which is owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group, is proud to present both sides of issues. For that reason, we have agreed to air the commercial you are about to see, opposing Sinclair’s acquisition of additional television stations. We think the ad is misleading, but wanted to let you decide. Thank you.”




Quote:
“The misleading ad you just saw focused on a brief promotional message that simply said we’re a source for truthful news,” the Sinclair voiceover says. “It ignored thousands of hours of local news we produce each year to keep you informed. The ad was purchased by a group known for its liberal bias, and we hope you won’t buy into the hysteria and hype.”
