Opposition continues to proposed Sinclair Broadcasting buyout of Tribune TV stations.
UNION LEADER THREATENS CAMPAIGN AGAINST SINCLAIR-TRIBUNE DEAL. POLITICO’s Jason Schwartz writes: “Dave Twedell, a business representative for the International Cinematographers Guild Local 600, says he hopes to rally the public against the deal and compel members of Congress to act. Twedell pointed to places like Seattle, one of 10 cities where both Sinclair and Tribune own stations, as potentially facing a drastic loss of local news coverage — and jobs — through consolidations.”

— Twedell is scheduled to meet Monday with Sinclair representatives to discuss protecting union members’ jobs. “If they decline to make that commitment, we are going to make a very big noise about it,” Twedell told Schwartz.

OTHERS MAKING NOISE: Allied Progress, a progressive group opposed to the Sinclair-Tribune merger, has launched a new 30-second ad aimed at FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.

My guess is the merger will go through with some moderate divestment requirements for Sinclair.
