Boycott Sinclair Broadcasting for Airing Anti-Kerry Propaganda and Calling it "News"
A BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
The corporate/GOP/Television "News" Propaganda machine is revving up to air a Kerry-bashing "documentary" (which they are calling a "news" show) Oct. 21 - 24 on their television stations, several of which are located in KEY SWING STATES like Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania. See this L.A. Times article.
The creator of this "news" show, a former reporter from the Washington Times, and author of a book on "Reverend" Sun Young Moon (owner of the Washington Times) will be allowed to PREEMPT regularly-scheduled prime-time programs in order to air this one-hour hit piece. The timing is, of course, planned for maximum influence upon the voting public.
I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of Faux News, CNN, Rupert Murdoch, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and the rest of them using dirty tricks and propaganda to brainwash the sheeple. Of course, it's their only weapon, since their Boy in the White House is losing like the loser he has always been!
CALL SINCLAIR BROADCASTING AND YOUR LOCAL STATIONS and let them know you will boycott their station and will NOT SUPPORT ANY ADVERTISERS who pay to put this garbage on the People's airwaves:
Voting is NOT enough...take action to preserve our Democracy!! Below is all the info I could get from Sinclair's website...now get busy!!
All the Best, Love ya Buzz and all you Buzzheads,

You will be able to contact that television station directly by clicking on the link listed by Sinclair. CALL THE TV STATIONS, don't just email! Believe me, 50 phone calls will have much more impact directly on that station than 100 emails; local, smaller TV stations are usually understaffed, overworked, and you will definitely get their attention by calling. Get your friends and family to call, too!
This is interesting: Sinclair has "centralized news" in several cities. This means that Sinclair basically provides a news template, no doubt complete with their GOP propaganda aimed at the station audiences that are not large enough to have their own news departments. Rural America, in other words. Click here to find out if your local station is getting faux "news" from Sinclair: http://www.sbgi.net/business/news.shtml THEN CALL THE STATION!
Since when is a political hit piece "news?"
