President Donald Trump on Monday touted Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns more than a dozen NBC news affiliates, as being "far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC."
The defense of Sinclair came amid a seven-tweet flurry Monday morning, in which the president weighed in on topics ranging from immigration to mega-retailer Amazon's tax status.
Trump tweet So funny to watch Fake News Networks, among the most dishonest groups of people I have ever dealt with, criticize Sinclair Broadcasting for being biased. Sinclair is far superior to CNN and even more Fake NBC, which is a total joke.
Sinclair's local broadcast networks drew national attention in March, after dozens of television anchors across the country recited an identical speech warning that some outlets are promulgating "biased and false news" in order to "push their own personal bias."
"This is extremely dangerous to our democracy," the script read.
