    Oh dear dear dear. It hasn't been a good week for Sinclair TV.

    First, advertisers threaten to pull their ads.

    Then they get sued by an ex-Marine for his portrayal in the anti-Kerry film.

    Then they fire a news editor who was critical of their handling of the film.

    Frankly, I hope that ex-Marine can successfully file an injunction to keep it from being shown.

    Some quotes from the above links, for those who are not registered with the New York Times:

    Like you later pointed out, they will no longer be showing the film. I hear the new Swiftboats ads aren't working so well either, now that they have about as much credibility as CBS news. :p And this would have been a 2 hour one of those. Probably no one who hadn't already decided to vote for Bush would have watched it anyway.
