Last Week Tonight with John Oliver wants you to think about your local TV news. 

On Sunday, he ran a segment about Sinclair Broadcast Group, which could soon complete a merger with Tribune Media that would let it reach 2.2 million households. 

The problem? Sinclair sometimes forces its stations to run right-wing stories, commentary, and commercials during local TV news broadcasts. 

Sadly, Sinclair stations won’t run Last Week Tonight‘s disclaimer starring Steve Schirripa from The Sopranos. 

Guess it’s up to viewers to figure out why their favorite anchors are suddenly spewing right-wing nonsense.
