Sources tell FTVLive that the FCC Commissioner met with Sinclair Broadcasting News Directors and corporate leaders Monday.
Yes, the same commissioner that will cast a vote soon whether to approve the contentious Sinclair-Allbritton deal.
We hear that FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn (pictured) told the execs that she couldn't talk about the Albriiton deal (wink, wink, nod,nod).
Sources say that Clyburn talked to the Sinclair suits for about an hour before taking questions which included managers touting the positives of Sinclair.
Clyburn also joined the group for lunch...talking more about FCC, mergers and more.
And nobody sees a conflict here?
