Ex-Sinclair Reporter Tells Executives to ‘Pull Their Head out of Their Ass’

Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” former Sinclair station reporter Jonathan Beaton, who is currently in a legal battle with the broadcast company, said he would tell the executives to “pull their head out of their ass and start treating their employees well.”

Partial transcript as follows:

STELTER: John, real quick, what do you want to see Sinclair doing? If you could give advice to the head of the company.

BEATON: I would tell them to pull their head out of their ass and start treating their employees well.

STELTER: Jonathan, it’s Sunday morning come on.

BEATON: It was a culture of misogyny and xenophobia, and I don’t want to see my former colleagues who are still working at Sinclair to have to continue to sustain that. And furthermore, I want the young journalists to know out there, hey look at who you’re applying for when it comes to jobs and do your research.  Same with the people who watch when in all these small and midsize markets in the U.S. I would tell Sinclair to get their act together.
