Sinclair Broadcasting Group, the local news behemoth that runs nearly 200 stations across the country, said it has decided to "delay" airing a segment highlighting a baseless and inflammatory conspiracy theory about the origin of the coronavirus.

"We will spend the coming days bringing together other viewpoints and provide additional context," the company said in a Saturday afternoon statement.

Eric Bolling, a former Fox News host who now hosts a program for Sinclair called "America This Week," spent several minutes on his latest show interviewing Judy Mikovits, a discredited scientist who is a central character in the conspiracy film "Plandemic," Media Matters was first to report.
