FCC Commissioner Echoes DNC's Criticism of Sinclair

Tuesday, 12 October 2004 12:00 AM

"This is the same corporation that refused to air Nightline's reading of our war dead in Iraq," Copps said.

"It is a sad fact that the explicit public interest protections we once had to ensure balance continue to be weakened by the Federal Communication Commission while it allows media conglomerates to get even bigger. Sinclair, and the FCC, are taking us down a dangerous path," he added.

Copps' criticism follows similar complaints by the Democratic National Committee, alleging that the Sinclair Broadcasting Group is run by big contributors to the Bush-Cheney campaign. The DNC announced plans Monday to file a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission against the Sinclair Broadcasting Group.

Sinclair said on its website, "Characterizations regarding the content are premature and are based on ill-informed sources."
