FCC Blasts Accusations Of Sinclair Favoritism From Pai


The FCC has responded to a report in The New York Times confirming an investigation into possible favoritism toward Sinclair Broadcast Group by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai by calling the accusation “absurd.”

In doing so, it pointed to a multimillion-dollar fine against the company for sponsored content violations while defending the chairman’s push to modernize FCC media ownership rules.

Some of this modernization is what pushed the FCC Inspector General to accept a request from two top Congressional Democrats to investigate Pai, which began at the end of 2017.
