I'll just leave this here since the merger is DEAD DEAD.
I wonder how they're feeling in the McCurry Heights section on OKC this evening? It's probably joy on East Britton Road and a oh well on East Wilshire Blvd.
Yeah. This is pretty much the equivalent of striking out in a tee-ball game.
How screwed is Sinclair with regulators or in the business community?
Wow those stations are kind of out on the edge of town. Is that just a legacy of where big sticks go in a place like Oklahoma?
Sure seems like it. KWTV and KOCO are nearby too.
They've always been that way for years. All of the major OKC TV stations are located on the North side of OKC, also if you ever go by the John Kilpatrick Turnpike, there are all of the TV towers from the big four TV stations in OKC
Maybe after the midterms, Sinclair will burrow themselves into the ground just like they did in 2006 after the tables turned...and Mark Hyman's "The Point" commentary went away...
Hopefully the judicial process will be well underway, and all of the scathing details will begin to be uncovered for all of the "fake news" outlets to proclaim....
Long-shot, but considering the breach of contract allegations on Tribune's part regarding Sinclair, could this be the opening act of Sinclair possibly going the way of RKO General (particularly if similar or worse actions are uncovered)?
By then it could open the possibility starting new media groups/ or one that has come out bankruptcy.
It may not be as large of a "long shot" as you might think, anything is possible
You must have no clue what the RKO General case was all about. And no it doesn't apply AT ALL.
RKO General's parent company General Tire got busted for violating the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. I think the Sinclair - Cunningham relationship might come under greater regulatory scrutiny given the revelations brought to light in the Tribune lawsuit.
Now Sinclair has withdrawn its apps regarding their now-terminated deal, and ask the ALJ to terminate the proceeding.
I was hoping there would still have some sort of a hearing/proceeding, even if the deal is dead.
Nice try, Sinclair...
That's why people are charged with attempted murder, even if they back out of committing the actual crime.
They misled Tribune and the FCC and need to be held accountable.
By the way, Tribune is holding a Q&A with stations today (more Q, not so much A).
Basic message: "Media is consolidating and we need to figure out the best long term value for the company."
Translation: Still no raises and the engineers are out or that black electrical tape, so can they borrow the Scotch Tape(tm) from the assignment desk?
Does anyone have as copy or a link to the filing of the Tribune lawsuit?
The link to the lawsuit of Sinclair by Tribune is here and the exhibit related to the lawsuit is here as well
