Apparently getting caught up in a massive backlash and boycott effort from the public over their outrage, the Sinclair group, owners of 60+ stations around the country, have backpedaled on their intent to run an anti-Kerry documentary days before the election. Well, in a twist of words they say they won't run the thing "in its entirety."

Instead, the company intends to re-package the documentary as a series of clips in a more ambiguous "public service" attack show which will, at least, start off "examining the role of the media in shaping public policy".
