Here's my take on this: I don't think Disney (ABC) will buy WSB or WFTV because as we all know they don't buy stations, they never have and they never will. But with this broadcasting industry, anything is possible so therefore I can't really discount Disney buying anything.
Still Perry Sook is a smart greedy bastard, as for Media General, the fact that somehow someway Sook hasn't screwed up the former Media General and LIN stations is an indicator that some of the former LIN and Media General executives have taken some control away from Perry Sook (and depending upon your point of view, it's either a good thing or a bad thing) Oh and another thing, the Nexstar-Media General merger is a classic example on how you get a deal the size it was completed without fighting the FCC or DOJ about divestitures and Sinclair set an example with the Tribune merger how you can turn a merger from a "slam-dunk approval" to your BFF that's also the Chairman of the FCC, sending the merger to the ALJ and killing the deal because of the stupidity of the Smith's
I don't think so, it's a Sinclair issue since they were the buyer of Tribune and not the other way around. If anything, Tribune had that DOJ case about the meddling with the sales and advertising that was reached to a consent decree with the DOJ a few weeks ago, so Nexstar is free to go ahead and get the Tribune deal completed

And what has Sinclair done since the merger collapsed? More of this stupid garbage they did during the entire Tribune merger process. Sinclair has already damaged their reputation as a business by not being honest with the FCC, they're doing further damage to their reputation by not admitting to the misrepresentation and quite frankly this is the reason why the ALJ is still sitting on the case (and more than likely the next Administrative Law Judge will probably just sit on the case and do nothing about it) and ultimately it's going to cost Sinclair their license to broadcast.
That's the truth, it's just unfortunate that he has to get Sinclair's support. If he wanted support from the bigger group he could've gone with Nexstar, TEGNA or something but not with a Hunt Valley, MD.-based Company that shall not be mentioned
Of course, and that's why Armstrong Williams is not any better than anyone else who works at Sinclair, SBG, Cunningham, Howard Stik all greedy, have no clue or understanding on anything related to the broadcasting business. Period.
His company is just as greedy as Sinclair is, that's the part I can't seem to figure out is why Sinclair is insisting on buying everything when everybody on here knows they're basically on probation at the FCC. Bottom line is neither Armstrong Williams or Chris Ripley has ANY clue what they're doing and I don't want to hear another word from them until the day I read an article that states "Sinclair has resolved it's lack of candor issues at the FCC"
Uhhh... isn't he aware of the fact that partner company he works for (Sinclair) is not only being sued by Tribune but is also on "probation" by the FCC over its misconduct during the deal? I can promise you that not even Perry Sook (for what all we know as greedy as he gets) will want to do business with Sinclair (not even with the divestitures. I know this may sound repetitive, but until SOMEONE in Hunt Valley wakes up and realize why they can't buy any stations (not even from divestment deals from another company) these are the facts that I'll keep bringing up in here every time someone in Hunt Valley and opens up their mouth claiming that they want to buy more stations
