Former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson who hit headlines for remarks about liberal bias at the network has been hired by Sinclair Broadcasting (which has its own reputation for conservative-tilted decisions).

The Little Rock angle is that Sinclair is the relatively new owner of KATV here.

And, from Media Bistro:

...Scott Livingston head of news for Sinclair wrote, “Sharyl will focus on stories that follow the money and waste watch type of investigations.” Waste Watch is a Sinclair investigative franchise.

Livingston told TVSpy Attkisson would file one to two pieces a month starting next week and that all Sinclair stations would be strongly encouraged to run them. He added, Attkisson “fits with our commitment to tracking the truth and being our advocate for the taxpayer.”
