Hate to make another post related to politics, but this is just unblievable to me.

In an unusual move, the Sinclair Broadcast Group, the largest independent operator of television stations in the United States, has ordered all 62 of its stations to preempt regular programming next week to air a documentary that is harshly critical of Sen. John Kerry’s anti-war activities in the early 1970s.

I don’t care about technicalities here…whether or not it’s a “contribution” to the Bush campaign, or if the FCC can play a part.

Not only that, but they’re presenting their opinions as news, a lot like Fox. That’s right, conservatives are literally hijacking channels to talk shit about Kerry.

What the hell is going on?
