    Most news channels broadcast propaganda nowadays instead of news.

    Most news channels broadcast propaganda nowadays instead of news. They do propaganda on their channels.

    I know you have told me that I can say they broadcast publicity for movies and TV series. But I would like to say these channels are sold and show whatever benefits them. They take money from influential people and show something bad for the people they want to derogate.

    Is my sentence correct?

    I think you mean "partisan" instead of "sold."

    Yes, partisan thank you but sometimes they take money as well to show a special news.

    It's special news, not a special news.

    Re: Most news channels broadcast propaganda nowadays instead of news.

    If they take money to show particular news, some people might say they have been "bought", not "sold".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    An organization that has been bought in this sense can also be said to have "sold out".

    You can say "the channels have sold out" but not "have been sold." "To be sold" means "to change ownership."

    Where they are open about being paid, terms like paid content or sponsored by xxx can be used.
