    precisely because the major networks wouldn't touch it. very possibly because of the problem with giving equal time to bush and cutting into their revenue stream from advertising. one could conclude their refusal was really to protect bush, but generally speaking i suspect protecting revenue comes first.

    this has actually been a problem in the past, when there have been questions about whether all the networks would, for example, carry presidential debates or whatever ballgame was being played at the same time. profit first, then politics. which means those making an argument that sinclair is acting against the best interests of its investors has merit in terms of the markets.
