Liz Bishop Sinclair, WRGB

Ex-CBS 6 staffers reflect on Sinclair Broadcasting’s ‘scripted drivel’ Sinclair Broadcast Group and its critics seem to agree: “This is extremely dangerous to our democracy.” They differ, however, on what “this” is. A script scan by dozens of native newscast anchors at Sinclair Broadcast cluster stations across the country recently, as well as Albany, N.Y.’s WRGB CBS half dozen News, has brought the national debate over bias and “fake news” into local newsrooms.

Though reported on by CNN and other media outlets last month, this “must-run” statement has garnered national attention in recent days after the website Deadspin stacked video of the local newscasters into an eerie, unified voice. The video was captioned “How America’s largest local TV owner turned its news anchors into soldiers in Trump’s war on the media.” We are concerned about the troubling trend of irresponsible,

one-sided news stories plaguing our country,” CBS 6 News Anchor Greg Floyd read during the CBS 6 broadcast.
“The sharing of biased and false news has become only too common on social media.” “More alarming, some media outlets publish these same fake stories without checking facts first,” added Anchor Liz Bishop, per the script.” This is extremely dangerous to our democracy,” Bishop and other newscasters read in a line repeated for dramatic effect in the Deadspin video.
Calls to management at CBS 6, which was purchased by Sinclair in 2012, were not returned. It is the only network in the Albany market owned by Sinclair. Sinclair Broadcasting has drawn scrutiny for years as a result of must-run pieces, from multiple news organizations, including The Guardian and Mother Jones.

In a segment last year on “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” on HBO, Oliver criticized Sinclair for airing must-run segments that skew conservative, like commentary from former Trump campaign adviser Boris Epshteyn and regular updates from the “Terrorism Alert Desk.”

Neither returned a request for comment from The Eagle on Tuesday.
Ken Screven, who retired in 2011 after more than 30 years with CBS 6, decried the Sinclair segment but stopped short of criticizing Bishop and Floyd. “I cannot imagine what my former newsroom colleagues Liz Bishop and Greg Floyd must be going through, forced to utter that Sinclair scripted drivel. I greatly respect them both.

I don’t think I would recognize the newsroom in which I built my career,” Screven told The Eagle. Sinclair is based in Maryland and owns or operates 193 television stations across the country, according to its website. In a statement posted on its website Monday, Sinclair defended the piece, which is described as a “promotional announcement” and serving “no political agenda.” These announcements were responding to the public’s distrust in news generally,” the statement said.

Scott Livingston, Sinclair’s senior vice president of news, said in a statement that the company was unsure of the motivation behind the criticism of the announcements.” It is ironic that we would be attacked for messages promoting our print media initiative for honest and objective news, and for specifically asking the general public to carry our newsrooms responsible,” Livingston said.

The must-run segments have allegedly angered journalists at Sinclair networks who fear they could erode the trust viewers have in local stations, CNN reported Monday, citing multiple sources. “It’s very hard to differentiate between this content and your locally produced content because it’s the same news personalities who are reading it,” said Howard, who worked at a Sinclair-owned station for more than two years in Springfield, Ill., before joining CBS 6.

But the must-run segments are just a fraction of what goes on the air every day and that journalists in every newsroom are collaborating to determine what deserves coverage locally, Howard aforementioned.”The folks therein newsroom sleep in that community and grasp what matters,”
