Trump & TV News

Michael Schneider notes that NBC's creation of Donald Trump via The Apprentice is today bringing around high ratings for MSNBC. A former CNN anchor is the new face of Trump's Facebook "news" outlet; Kayleigh McEnany has also added a job as RNC spokesperson. James Poniewozik covers Norman Lear's anti-Trump stance. Politico looks at how the Trump-era FCC is helping Sinclair to expand, which in turn is raising concerns that Sinclair will be excessively powerful after the Tribune acquisition. Over at Fox News, the new Seth Rich-related allegations could reverberate back on Rupert Murdoch's bid for Sky. And Fox News has suspended Eric Bolling over sexual harassment allegations, which he denies.
