Sinclair is bringing its approach to mid-sized markets like Birmingham, Dayton, Columbus, Sacramento, Milwaukee, and even Des Moines (Fox, Ch. 17) and Cedar Rapids (CBS, Ch. 2). In Iowa, Sinclair cuts corners even more by sharing anchors and operations between their Des Moines and Cedar Rapids stations, making the â€œlocalâ€ part even less local.

In recent decades, there have been plenty of famous presidential deceptions. Reagan said he’d never bargain with terrorists, but he did. Bush senior said he asked us to read his lips when he said “no new taxes,” then he signed off on new taxes. Clinton said he “did not have sexual relations with that woman,” but he did (unless you accept Clinton’s lawyerly parsing of what “sexual relations” might mean).
But the current Bush administration has taken dishonesty to new heights, or should I say depths, as misleading the public via the news media has become standard operating procedure.
