Pro-Trump TV network under fire for 'fake news' script

Sinclair Broadcast Group is under fire for forcing its local news anchors to read in unison an identical script criticising 'fake' news stories in a video that has gone viral.

    A montage of dozens of news presenters in the United States reading from the same script, warning of the dangers of so-called fake news, has gone viral.

    They all work for local stations owned by Sinclair, the country's biggest broadcaster.

    It is seen as pro-Donald Trump and it aims to reach more than 70 percent of US households.
