Sinclair Broadcasting Group

I heard this story on the radio yesterday and then I received a confusing twice-forwarded email about it just now from a friend. I'm just dumping all the information I have below, I wish I had time to make it look better but all kinds of stuff is happening at work and I'm supposed to be, y'know, working. Here:

Listen to the story.


Sinclair Stations to Air Anti-Kerry Documentary
By Paul Farhi
Washington Post Staff Writer

Monday, October 11, 2004; Page A07

Sinclair Broadcast Group of Maryland, owner of the largest chain of television stations in the nation, plans to preempt regular programming two weeks before the Nov. 2 election to air a documentary that accuses Sen. John F. Kerry of betraying American prisoners during the Vietnam War.

Sinclair has ordered its 62 stations, some of which are in the critical swing states of Ohio, Florida, Iowa and Wisconsin, to air "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal" during prime-time hours next week. The Sinclair station group collectively reaches 24 percent of U.S. television households.

If you live within broadcasting range of the stations below, a note to the FCC would be most effective. These stations' licenses are up for renewal soon (MD, VA, and WV review dates have passed but have not been acted on. Write now!) Everyone who has to listen to public opinion is sick to death of c&p emails--go to this excellent instruction page at www.sinclairwatch.org/step4.php for tips on filing an informal objection.
