The Scramble: No (Legitimate) News Is Good News For Trump; Facebook Goes To Washington

Apr 9, 2018

Conservative media giant Sinclair Broadcast Group will reach 72 percent of American homes with televisions if they're allowed to acquire Tribune Media. The president likes the idea - even as it breaks current FCC rules that no TV station owners should reach beyond 39 percent of homes. No wonder he likes it. A new analysis shows President Trump does better in areas lacking a trusted news outlet. 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will testify before Congress this week to tell them how he plans to protect the private information of Facebook users - among many other things. What does Facebook need to do to fix itself?

Lastly, we take your calls. There's lots going on in Connecticut including a suggestion that we move the capital back to New Haven. So, should we?
