Letter to the Editor: El Paso News Anchors Recite Creepy Sinclair Propaganda

El Paso TV news anchors, Maese and Dodson from KDBC Channel 4, and Castillo and Holguin from KFox Channel 14, were forced to recite the same creepy Sinclair propaganda message on air last month.

Sinclair Broadcast Group required its journalists to parrot one of President Trump’s most consistent talking points — an allegation that the mainstream media cannot be trusted. These video segments are now being slammed as “hostage” videos and amount to no more than a corporate piece of propaganda.  Sinclair’s claim of balanced reporting is now totally undermined by its own ‘must-run segments.’ This is dangerous to our democracy.

Our local stations are also required to run right-wing commentary segments, including segments by former Trump advisers. Sinclair uses their platforms to push their own bias and agenda to control ‘exactly what people think.’

Our free press is sacrosanct to who we are as a people and is the cornerstone of our democracy. We, the people, are not okay with this. We hold our institutions dear and we depend on our local news to give us honest, unbiased news. Saying that you are giving us professional honest reporting while spewing a propaganda message parroted across the country by brainwashed cult members bashing the first amendment is the exact opposite of that. They have lost my confidence and have lost me as a viewer.

Local TV Stations KFOX14, CBS4 announce Drone Camera for News Coverage

Local Sinclair TV stations KFOX14 and CBS4 announced the inclusion of a new tool for their news coverage: a piloted drone.

According to a Tuesday morning news release, the KFOX14 News “Skycam” and the CBS4 “Eye in the Sky” is the newest addition to their news gathering arsenals.   The 2-man, piloted drone is the first of its kind in the area, giving a new perspective to news, weather, and traffic coverage.

“We are always in search of the next big way to provide the best coverage to the community,” said KFOX14 and CBS4 News Director Shauna Ziegler.  “This is a huge step to giving viewers access to video where we might have had limitations before.  We look forward to offering this new view of news from the sky.”

Kevin Hayes, General Manager of KFOX14 and CBS4, mentions, “This is not a small undertaking to have a piloted drone.  This takes a skilled team to safely and responsibly bring this type of news gathering to our viewers.  We are very proud of the dedication this team has put into the process so that we can provide this added layer of coverage to the community.”

The KFOX14 News “Skycam” can be seen on the KFOX14 Morning News from 5-9am, KFOX14 News at Five, and KFOX14 News at Nine.

CBS4 “Eye in the Sky” can be seen on CBS4 Daybreak from 5-7am, CBS4 at 12, CBS4 at 5:30, and CBS4 at 10.
