Oh, and check the update in TFA.

"Not Florida, Ohio" is now "In Florida and Ohio"

Don't like this? Live in Ohio? Write to the FCC demanding they withdraw the broadcaster's license(s) noting that the lthe broadcasting rights were sold to them at a discount on the conditions that they would use part of their time to educate and inform in the interests of the public good, and that blatant lies, and propoganda are wholly incompatible with that interest. Every single complaint must be dealt with.

With sufficent critical mass, an organized group could retain the services of a lawyer sufficently specialized in this area to represent their interests, and pay to file a formal complaint.

Then when their license comes up for renewal and the FCC has it's public commentary period, hammer them with everything and every member possible.

Kick them right in the money.

sinclair has done this before. it's basically a 30-minute "video news release" - a shady PR tactic in which an opinion piece is passed off as real news (similar to an "advertorial.")

Ohioans aren't going to sit through one more 30 second commercial, let alone a 1/2 hour commercial.
