Sinclair's Broadcasting Plans Are Odious
Postmarks  October 12, 2004
"...Dear Mr. Black, I am a former Austinite of 12 years, relocated a far piece north, so I'd first like to say I miss y'all – the whole city – and I hope everyone is keeping the faith and behaving themselves.

The Yes Men Fix the World
These anti-corporate pranksters strike again.
Film Review  February 5, 2010, by Marc Savlov
"...One other clever gambit is so outlandish, so Swiftian in its brazen improbability, that the positive reaction it receives from the corporate side is, frankly, nauseating (think Soylent Green). Directed and edited with verve and style, the film, in the end, is unlikely to save the world per se, but the Yes Men’s bravery and unflagging sense of optimistically doomed humor – which comes across as a quixotic version of Monty Python by way of Upton Sinclair – is to be applauded and, wherever possible, acted upon...."

DAILY News  April 6, 2018, by Mary Tuma
"...Woven together in a Deadspin video compilation that has since drawn millions of hits online, we see anchors of all stripes from 29 different states issuing the caution, which strikingly echoes President Trump’s own rebuke of the media’s “fake news.” The local affiliates had one thing in common: Their stations are each owned by Sinclair Broadcasting, among the country’s largest media conglomerates.
