FCC Chair Ajit Pai is rolling out the red carpet for Sinclair to become the largest owner of TV stations in America, reaching 72% of the country. That’s why we’ve called on the FCC Inspector General to investigate Pai’s suspicious favors for Sinclair.
But we need every agency charged with protecting the public interest to step up and put the American people first.
That’s why we’re calling on the Department of Justice to block the Sinclair-Tribune merger. There have been reports in recent days that the Department of Justice is “close” to approving the merger1, but if enough people speak out, we can get the DOJ to change course.
