To Stop Sinclair, You have to look at their Advertisers
Sinclair relies heavily on TV advertising to make its money. While some of the advertisers are other big companies, most of the commercials during the evening news are sponsored by small local businesses that may have no idea their money is supporting pro-Trump propaganda.
If these small businesses start moving their advertising spend to non-Sinclair stations, Sinclair will suffer the consequences. The more their bottom line drops, the less influence they have, and the more we educate people about what Sinclair is and shine a light on their deceptive practices, the less powerful they will become.

Frequently Asked Questions
You're joining thousands of people in hopes of making main stream media honest.
Who are we?
STOP SINCLAIR is a group of like-minded citizens, united by concern about Sinclair's reach and its goal to control delivery of biased, right-wing news.
Who is Sinclair?
Sinclair Broadcasting Group operates at least 173 stations across the country, as well as a portfolio of news channels that includes many CBS, NBC, and ABC-labeled networks.
Why boycott Sinclair advertisers?
Most of Sinclair's money comes from local advertisers on its news station. While the SBG corporate office is unlikely to listen to a wave of complaints, the neighborhood stores who advertise on their stations certainly will. If you can get local businesses to drop your local Sinclair station, it puts a huge dent in Sinclair’s bottom line and keeps its influence under control.
Why is Sinclair a threat to democracy?
Sinclair has the power to control programming, including introducing must-run segments that each station is required to air. Sinclair Broadcast Group is controlled by the Sinclair family, whose ultra-conservative politics infuse all of the stations it operates. Sinclair must-runs parrot right-wing talking points and air commentary disguised as unbiased news. When this biased news is presented as the truth, hundreds of thousands of people across the country are in danger of being mislead.
What can you do?
No matter where you live, you probably have a Sinclair station nearby. You may even watch their nightly news without being aware of it! Contact the advertisers you care about who are currently partnered with Sinclair. Let them know that they're in the wrong.
What should I do first?
Check the database on our website to find local advertisers who partner with their local Sinclair-owned station. Start reaching out to these businesses in your community and ask them if they are aware of what they are supporting when they support a Sinclair station - and that you plan to boycott if they continue to do so.
