Sinclair Broadcast Group, the biggest owner-operator of TV stations in the country, seeks to acquire Tribune, another media giant. While the FCC hasn't approved the merger, it's paved the way for Sinclair to control more and more local stations.

NPR media correspondent David Folkenflik (@davidfolkenflik) joins Here & Now's Meghna Chakrabarti to explain what these changes might mean.

This segment aired on October 26, 2017.
