Sinclair Broadcast Group TV producer called it quits this week after a disagreement with the company, according to a CNN report.
According to CNN, former KHGI TV producer Justin Simmons felt disgusted with the company for forcing local anchors to read pro-White House talking points.
“This is almost forcing local news anchors to lie to their viewers,” Simmons explained.
“Making the local anchors do this was a big concern for me,” he said. “I didn’t go into news to give people biased information.”
“Resigning seemed like the least I could do,” Simmons added. “I wish there was more.”
Trump, who claims everything that doesn’t make him look good is fake news, defended Sinclair after news broke out that their anchors were scripted to attack other news outlets that criticized the president.

So funny to watch Fake News Networks, among the most dishonest groups of people I have ever dealt with, criticize Sinclair Broadcasting for being biased. Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC, which is a total joke.
