Remember Sinclair Broadcasting? Back in 2004? Sinclair is an extremely rightwing and hackmonious media company that owns stations in media markets around the country. They have a rep for jamming wildly slanted content onto their airwaves in the lead up to the elections. They were the ones who had the bright idea to run a Swift Boat ‘documentary’ on their stations just before the 2004 elections. Because, you know, informing voters and so forth. Well, last night they were up to their tricks again.
