NEW YORK (AP) – Broadcasting group Sinclair has distanced itself from comments from its main political analyst, Boris Epshteyn, who this week supported the Trump government's efforts to stop migrants at the US border with Mexico.
The comment triggered protests and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists announced its intention to reconsider the possibility of allowing Sinclair's representatives to attend his recruitment events.
Sinclair tweeted that Epshteyn's opinions "in this segment do not reflect the views of Sinclair Broadcast Group". The company owns dozens of local TV channels across the country.
Sinclair's representatives did not immediately send messages Thursday asking if their stations were to make comments with which they did not agree, or even confirm that it was the specific Epshteyn statement she was referring to. .
