Shilling Tickets for a Trump Rally

Post by sinklair » Sun Sep 06, 2020 11:53 am

President Trump’s campaign rally in Freeland this week is newsworthy. However, why are 25-66 and 12 helping hawk tickets for this partisan event?

(I haven’t yet seen 5 add in ticket info...)

If it were an official visit unrelated to a campaign event, that’s fine to add in details about tickets. But to use a news article and airtime to promote how to attend a political rally? The right would go CRAZY if stations did that for Biden... so why is it OK for the stations to do it for Trump? The In Over Their Head News Directors at 25-66 and 12 obviously have political agendas.

No worse than shilling tickets for a Christmas concert nobody attended.
