Sinclair Under Fire for Anti-Kerry Film Plans

After it was reported that Sinclair, the largest television station group in the country, would air an anti-Kerry film on its 62 stations prior to the election, the company has come under swift attack from Democrats in Washington. They're filing complaints with the FEC and FCC, claiming the move amounts to an in-kind contribution to the Bush campaign and could be ruled as an improper use of the public airwaves. The web has also been buzzing with activity, prompting a dedicated blog, petition site and Sinclair advertiser database for petition and boycott purposes.
