White House press secretary Sarah Sanders sat down for a softball interview with Sinclair Broadcast Group’s chief political analyst and former Trump aide, Boris Epshteyn, to talk about the so-called liberal “media bias” against President Trump and to discuss the president’s recent summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.
Media Matters notes that the two-part interview conducted on June 20 was aired on local Sinclair stations across the country on June 21 and June 25.
Media Matters reports:
These parts of Epshteyn’s interview are now airing as “must-run” segments on more than 100 Sinclair-owned and -operated local TV news stations across the country, sandwiched between sports and the weather.
In the latest “Bottom Line With Boris” segment, Sanders and Epshteyn discuss the “disrespectful and despicable” ways that “many in the media” treat Sanders. According to a Media Matters search of the iQ media database this morning, this segment has already aired on local news stations in at least 21 states.
The entire astonishing two-minute spot is worth watching, if only to understand the propaganda that will now be broadcast into living rooms across the country.
The June 21 segment of the interview focused on all the ways Sanders and Epshteyn believe the North Korea summit was successful; it has now aired on stations in at least 22 states. Here is a partial transcript of what local news audiences heard about the meeting:
