The dangerous myth about the so-called ‘liberal’ media is still going strong

<EXCERPT> This is a misleading, decontextualized position.
The attempt by Trump to undermine the U.S. electoral system leans heavily upon convincing his supporters that media analyses of his attacks are “fake” because “The Media” are a biased, leftist monolith. Legitimizing this myth only serves the interests of those opposed to the critical analysis of current events in the United States. And, it undermines critical analysis of all forms of power, including when Democrats hold that power.
“What I wanted was purely to make money,” David, the richest of the brothers with an estimated net worth of about $325 million, unapologetically told Forbes 28 years ago in a story detailing his plans to expand Sinclair. David, who stepped down as CEO last year but remains chairman, refused to comment for this story.
The family’s aggressive approach coupled with a Trump-era preference for deregulation means that Sinclair may get bigger in the years to come. Sinclair’s proposed acquisition of Tribune Media, which would give it 42 more stations, will enable it to reach 72% of U.S. households, up from about 40%.
Sinclair Broadcast Group, with 193 local channels reaching 40% of the population, is the second-largest local TV station owner in the U.S. (and the largest owner of FOX and ABC affiliate stations). Sinclair has earned a reputation for aggressively pushing right-wing content. From 2017–19, Sinclair forced its channels to air “must-run segments,” including commentaries by former Trump senior advisor Boris Epshteyn, which stations were required to air 9 times a week. A 2019 study in the American Political Science Review on the impact of Sinclair purchasing local stations concluded that such purchases resulted in, “a significant rightward shift in the ideological slant of coverage” on those channels.

A group of veteran cryptocurrency journalists comprising representatives from the sector’s largest publishing firms – The Block, CoinDesk, Cointelegraph, Decrypt and Forbes Crypto – formally launched a member-based organization on Monday.
The Association of Cryptocurrency Journalists and Researchers will provide education, mentorship and training to ensure practitioners aspire to the highest ethical and journalistic standards; host digital and physical events to provide outlets for networking and professional outreach; and offer annual grants and awards to recognize and encourage outstanding work.
“The ACJR will provide a much-needed resource for journalists and researchers covering the tricky cryptocurrency beat,” says Cuen. “We’re a global group, helping reporters from Caracas to London and Hong Kong.”
“We started this group to support and defend free and independent journalism in the cryptocurrency domain, which is the most exciting convergence of finance and technology in the world today,” says Wong.
Other founders include:
- Michael del Castillo, Forbes associate editor
- Michael McSweeney, The Block managing editor
- Josh Quittner, Decrypt Media co-founder
- Jon Rice, Cointelegraph editor-in-chief
- Pete Rizzo, Kraken editor-at-large
- Camila Russo, The Defiant founder
- Zack Seward, CoinDesk managing editor
- Laura Shin, Unchained founder
- Molly Jane Zuckerman, CoinMarketCap content manager
As the blockchain industry jumpstarted by Satoshi Nakamoto in 2008 increasingly matures, the group recognizes the opportunity for those who cover the technology to collaborate with a view to elevating standards of investigation, accuracy, fact-checking, and writing.
The ACJR is currently working with law firm Proskauer Rose LLP, which has donated its time to help the group file as a tax-exempt 501(6)c non-profit organization, a business group similar to a chamber of commerce assembled to promote an industry.
The organization is currently seeking members and will soon launch a monthly newsletter. To get involved, or learn more about joining, sign up for the newsletter, follow the ACJR on Twitter (@ACJRNetwork) and Telegram and learn more on the website: acjr.network.
Membership will be open to professional reporters and researchers, and associate membership will be open to anyone interested in supporting ACJR’s mission.
