The NY Times was one of many to report on the weekend Pumpkin propaganda run by Sinclair, a RWNJ “news” conglomerate. They gave anchors at every station a Kremlin-approved script to read word-for-word, together with instruction on things like how to dress for this. No reds or blues, so as to show a non-partisan appearance.
Yeah. Right. Wing, that is.

Dan Rather called it right the hell out:
News anchors looking into camera and reading a script handed down by a corporate overlord, words meant to obscure the truth not elucidate it, isn't journalism. It's propaganda. It's Orwellian. A slippery slope to how despots wrest power, silence dissent, and oppress the masses.
