NEW YORK (AP) – The Sinclair Broadcast Group diverges from comments from its chief political analyst Boris Epshteyn, who supported the Trump Administration’s efforts to stop migrants at the US border to Mexico this week.
The commentary has triggered protests, and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists said it is reconsidering that the Sinclair representatives can participate in their recruitment events.
Sinclair tweeted that Epshteyn’s views “in this segment do not reflect the Sinclair Broadcast Group.” The company owns dozens of local TV stations across the country.
Sinclair Representatives did not immediately leave announcements on Thursday about whether it required its stations to run commenting it did not agree or even confirm that it was the specific Epshteyn statement that it referred to.
