100% with you on that. Wouldn’t care what the benefit to my school’s athletics would be.
What's so bad about Sinclair?

They own the majority of all media outlets in the country and they are heavily criticized for promoting their political slant and for their use of heavy propaganda during the last election.

It doesn't align with the previous posters' political views
In general, I don't want to be on any media outlet where people will say "I didn't know ______ even showed college football!" Usually the only people who are going to be watching you there are fans of your school who already know the game is going to be on.

Not that there's a ton of people checking ESPNU on week nights in the fall to see if college football is on, but the number is a lot more than those looking for a game on CBS Sports or Sinclair or Facebook Live or Twitch or whatever.

You mean you wouldn't want to be on beIN Sports, a subsidiary of Al Jazeera like Conference USA?

They have coordinated messaging across "local" news to push a political agenda. Local news should be truly local and not have any of that involved in it. There was a video recently that showed multiple Sinclair "local" broadcasts making the same broadcasts across the nation, all synced up together. There's also been reports from people working on these broadcasts that were ordered to give them.

Also the fact that Sinclair doesn't use onsite personnel for sports broadcasts, they're stuck in a studio somewhere. It's just cheap.
Anybody remember their god awful American Sports Network? Crappy production value

And what political agenda was that? They stated that there is unbiased and false news reporting going on, which is very true, and that they wouldn't be a part of it. Isn't it a message saying they won't be political and their agenda is the truth.

I'm not advocating for us to go with them, I have no idea if that would be of any benefit to us though.

But you also posted Sinclair doesn’t have a political slant, their agenda is the truth, so how could they then align or clash with anybody’s political views? You seem confused. Does Sinclair as an organization have a clear political slant or not?

My guess is you don’t actually believe this, but rather are all for what Sinclair is and what their goals are.

If you sincerely DO believe it, then, well, Sinclair has done well to get their message to folks like you.

If our games were on there I would just be tuning in to watch the game not any other programming of theirs so doesnt matter what side of the political aisle they are on.

Sinclair isn't a news channel like CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, who hand picks their anchors/correspondents because of their views and agendas, which typically all line up. They are the owner of a 150+ of local affiliates. Sure, the management has their political views and goals, but the hundreds upon hundreds of anchors across their network are hired and managed locally and have a wide array of opinions and views. So what if management sent out an identical message for all local stations to deliver regarding their mission to try and deliver truthful news without bias? Most companies have a mission statement.

The message didn't have a political slant to it. Of course the execs in the Sinclair Corporation have a political slant.

Which morphed into Stadium which actually does a pretty decent broadcast. It's free and easy to find online if you don't live in an area that has the station and the quality is good. I have no problem with Stadium broadcasts.
