Release the hounds!

Media Matters for America, David Brock’s new media watchdog outfit, just annouced that they’ve underwritten the costs of a shareholder action to force Sinclair Broadcasting to provide real equal time to balance their forced airing of the hour-long Swift Boat smear.

A demand letter just went out this morning and that’s to be followed tomorrow, if no reasonable response is forthcoming, by a request for an injunction preventing the airing of the film.

And if that weren’t enough, that’s not the only lawsuit coming down the pike this afternoon.

Also, we’re hearing that there are quite a few Sinclair employees at the local level who are actually hoping the boycott works.
