Allman Report: Firing Back At Media Matters Story On Show, Sinclair Deal With Tribune
ST. LOUIS —
The self-described media watchdog website Media Matters waded into the debate over media ownership (specifically the pending deal between our parent company Sinclair Broadcast Group and Tribune which is currently under FCC review), using our show as a means to make its argument.
The piece claims that Jamie is a "wannabe Sean Hannity" peddling conservative “conspiracy theories”. Jamie and Sinclair Broadcast Group say that bringing conservative voices into media are balancing a pervasive liberal slant in the mainstream media.
Jamie says his show does not try to be a news program and has never tried to hide that fact. The Allman Report is topical and balanced, featuring a wider array of voices that you'll find in most media programs.
To prove that point, Jamie talked to a show regular, a very left-leaning man by the name of Mark Kasen.
They also debated clean coal energy and immigration policy.
