News Producer Quits, Attacks Sinclair for ‘Bias,’ Doesn’t Mention Hundreds in Donations to Democrats

After a liberal frenzy over a Sinclair segment this weekend, at least one producer at a local Nebraska station resigned in the wake of the controversy.

According to a report from CNN‘s Brian Stelter, Justin Simmons, a former producer at local Nebraska news channel NTV, left the Sinclair-owned station due to the segment. Simmons said that Sinclair “is almost forcing local news anchors to lie to their viewers.”

He cited Sinclair’s “obvious bias,” and the former producer said, “I didn’t go into news to give people biased information.

But Simmons didn’t mention his own political activity in Stelter’s piece while slamming Sinclair’s “obvious bias.”

According to FEC filings, Justin Simmons from NTV News donated hundreds of dollars to the Bernie Sanders campaign in the 2016 cycle.

February 20, 2016: Simmons donated $15 to the Sanders campaign.

February 24, 2016: Simmons donated $174 to the Sanders campaign.

March 4, 2016: Simmons donated $15 to the Sanders campaign.

March 13, 2016: Simmons donated $10 to the Sanders campaign.

March 14, 2016: Simmons donated $50 to the Sanders campaign.

With at least five transactions and hundreds of dollars in donations, Simmons was clearly “feeling the Bern” while he produced news at NTV.

Additionally, Simmons’ Twitter biography links to a political action committee, Wolf PAC. The PAC was founded by liberal commentator Cenk Uygur to fight money in politics. It’s not clear if Simmons had the PAC link in his biography during his time at NTV.

Fortunately for him, Sinclair did not terminate their partnership because of his own obvious bias.
