Sinclair Group reportedly required over 100 TV stations to air 'must run' segment that defends use of tear gas on migrants at the border

A report from The Daily Beast suggests that the right-leaning Sinclair Broadcast Group gave over 100 of their local news outlets a "must run" segment to broadcast: a defense of the US Border Patrol's use of tear gas against migrants, including children crossing the border, on Sunday.

Sinclair Broadcasting Group, which is based in Maryland, is the largest television station owner in the United States. According to SeattlePi.com, "The company distributes 'must-run; segments to its newsrooms, requiring they air them within 48 hours," which "typically feature conservative commentary, including a recurring segment from former Donald Trump official Boris Epshteyn."
