Bombing Sinclair

....so to speak. Besides, I abhor loud noises (guitars excepted).

As soon as I can get a list of national advertisers for Sinclair stations, I'm going to post it here so everyone can email/call to tell them that as long as they support the Sinclair Broadcasting group (and it's intention to air an anti-Kerry program), those companies will lose our business.

Since we're not in a local market for Sinclair, there's not a lot we can do about local advertisers (but in you have family/friends living in a Sinclair city you can clue them in about calling local advertisers and NICELY letting them know that they will be losing business unless they cut their ties with a Sinclair station); however, we can contact the Big Boys throwing their money into the Sinclair toilet and let them know that this thing is only going to get uglier. Media Matters also tells you how to contact Sinclair itself and urge them not to broadcast the anti-Kerry attack film "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal" between now and the Nov. 2 presidential election.

If you think calls and pressure don't work, think again. Daily Kos is saying that advertisers are already pulling ads from stations and Josh Marshall is also reporting results from his readers. Atrios and others throughout Left Blogosphere are reporting a distinct downturn in Sincair's stock performance (as well as Sinclair's defense contracts and its vested interest in a Bush win in November, via Oliver Willis).

Too much is riding on this brothers and sisters, too much for us to sit back and let the brownshirts steal our country AGAIN.
