Sinclair Starts PAC

Sinclair Broadcasting Group is jumping full on into the political pool. The company is forming a PAC, according to paperwork recently filed with Federal Election Commission.

Sinclair Senior Vice President of Policy and Strategy Rebecca Hanson (really? That's the person's job?) says the company will use the PAC as it works on issues in front of Congress and the Federal Communications Commission.

“There are a lot of challenges facing our industry, and we believe that engaging in the process through the PAC is one of a variety of ways to further our goals,” Hanson said.

Hanson said the PAC does not yet have plans to get involved in specific races or support specific candidates.

“We’re still in the process of forming it internally,” she said.

In other words they are totally going to be involved in specific races and support specific candidates.
