Lots of Fake News in NC

Kirk Ross alerts us that the FCC is seeking information about “fake news” reports at four North Carolina television stations. WCCB (Charlotte), WCTI (New Bern), WGHP (Greensboro) and the Sinclair station WLFL (Raleigh). The FCC has sent 77 letters to stations all over the nation. More at Ross’s Exile on Main Street and the Center for Media and Democracy. Basically these stations are airing commercials that look allot like news reports. Why does this not surprise me?
