Action 2 – [US HOUSE & SENATE] – Sinclair Broadcasting – Thank Senators Murray and Cantwell. Contact your Representative

Last week we asked you to contact your Members of Congress in opposition to the merger of Sinclair Broadcasting and Tribune Media. On Thursday Sens. Murray and Cantwell called for an investigation of Sinclair Broadcasting, and a pause on the proposed merger. Please call and thank the senators for their public stance on this important issue. Also call and ask your representative to do the same.

  • Sen. Patty Murray: DC 202-224-2621 | Seattle 206-553-5545
  • Sen. Maria Cantwell: DC 202-224-3441 | Seattle 206-220-6400

Sample Script for Senators:

“Hello! My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [CITY, ZIP]. I’m to thank the senator for calling for an investigation into Sinclair Broadcasting, and pausing the merger of Sinclair Broadcasting and Tribune Media. Thank you for speaking out publicly against this merger.”

  • Rep. Suzan DelBene (1st) DC – 202-225-6311 | Bothell 425-485-0085
  • Rep. Dave Reichert (8th) DC – 202-225-7761 | Issaquah 425-677-7414
  • Rep. Adam Smith (9th) DC – 202-225-8901 | Renton 425-793-5180

Sample Script for Representative:

“Hello! My name is [NAME] and I’m calling from [CITY, ZIP]. I’m calling in opposition to the merger of Sinclair Broadcasting and Tribune Media. The merger will expand Sinclair’s reach to a massive 72% of US households. The FCC should not roll back regulations in order to grow Sinclair’s pro-Trump, right-wing messaging. The recent forced Sinclair messaging on local news stations is an example of the type of propaganda we can expect if this merger is allowed.  Please join Senators Murray and Cantwell in speaking out publicly against this merger.”
