In an increasingly divided age, with commentators offering partisan opinions on cable TV, online and over the radio, local TV news has generally remained a politically neutral zone. But the controversy surrounding Sinclair Broadcast Group, the Maryland-based company that owns more than 190 local TV stations around the country - including Portland's ABC affiliate, KATU-TV -- has focused attention on politics infiltrating local news coverage. Media ethics experts have already noted that Sinclair Broadcast Group policies reflect a conservative agenda, including requiring Sinclair-owned stations to air commentaries by Boris Epshteyn, a former aide to president Donald Trump whose opinion pieces support Trump's decisions. Concerns about the Sinclair Broadcast Group's relationship to its local TV stations grew more heated over the weekend, as a viral video made by the sports website Deadspin made the rounds.

Grade school and college students alike are expected to ditch class Wednesday morning to demand tougher gun laws from politicians after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre. At least 3,000 protests from Washington state to New York will kick off at 10 a.m. local time and are slated to last 17 minutes — a minute for each victim killed during the bloody shooting in Parkland, Fla., last month. The demonstrations will range from a reading of victim names, lobbying lawmakers for improved background check regulations to registering to vote. Even students in Hawaii will host a scattering of rallies in support of gun control legislation and an end to firearm violence, according to organizers behind the Women’s March. “Our elected officials must do more than tweet thoughts and prayers in response to this violence,” the Empower group wrote on its website. For the youngest of protesters, it may be their first taste of civil disobedience. Especially if the … [Read more...] about Students nationwide to walkout in protest of gun violence
