Left-wing activist group Media Matters has taken credit for doing the research that led to Deadspin’s video of Sinclair Broadcasting anchors reading an editorial script against fake news.

The establishment media has had a collective meltdown over the Sinclair script, calling it “chilling,” “dangerous,” “concerning,” and “propaganda.” (RELATED: Montage: Establishment Media Very ‘Concerned’ About Sinclair’s ‘Propaganda’)

“Sinclair video making rounds…was largely possible because a dedicated and dutiful @pamela_vogel spent 100s of hours monitoring Sinclair and first compiled the examples,” Angelo Carusone, the president of Media Matters, tweeted.

“Without [Pamela’s] efforts and expertise, we’d all be a lot less informed about the harms of Sinclair,” he continued.

Sinclair has defended the scripts they sent to anchors, saying they were intended to keep trust with viewers.
