NYT: Feinstein sends letter to FCC re Sinclair Group Showing Anti-JK film
TV Group to Show Anti- Kerry Film on 62 Stations
By JIM RUTENBERG
Up to 62 television stations owned or managed by the Sinclair Broadcasting Group - many of them in swing states - will show a documentary highly critical of Senator John Kerry's antiwar activities 30 years ago within the next two weeks, Sinclair officials said yesterday.
Those officials said the documentary would pre-empt regular night programming, including prime time, on its stations, which include affiliates for all six of the major broadcast networks in the swing states of Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, Nevada and Pennsylvania.
<>Mr. Clanton said Mr. Kerry's campaign would call on supporters to stage advertiser boycotts and demonstrations against Sinclair's stations.
A group of Democratic senators, including Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts and Dianne Feinstein of California, readied a letter calling for the Federal Communications Commission to investigate the move, arguing that the documentary was not news but a prolonged political advertisement from Mr. Bush and, as such, violated fairness rules.
MSNBC is now reporting this story...

Response to Original message
1. Hopefully since MSNBC is on it
and CNN was on it yesterday, the public will be angry enough to demand that the film not be shown. Or at least demand that the FCC conduct a fair investigation of this matter. We here at DU need to flood the FCC and the Sinclair group, as well as their competitors. Not to mention the advertisers.

You've undoubtedly heard that they are forcing all their stations to air an anti-Kerry documentary just before the election. Well, I monitor the liberal blogs and sites and I gotta tell you there is a bloody fury brewing. Don't assume that liberals are pussies. At this point they are so freaking mad and energized that they'll do whatever it takes to bring this company down. Stay away. You don't want to see your capital incinerated because this family business wants to use the business to push a political agenda. Put your money somewhere else until the storm blows over. Hey, maybe this stock will be an excellent buy at $2 in a couple weeks.

You've got to remember, it's only free speech for the liberals if they want to hear it. What a whiney bunch of pussies.
They have been reading our minds.....
Fucking asholes. Free speech is only for them.
