Staples Boycotts Sinclair News

Group Wonders If Staples Will Boycott CBS

Office supply retailer Staples, Inc. has decided to withdraw advertising buys from news broadcasts on Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. television stations in response to an e-mail campaign by left-wing activists, according to reports by the Washington Post and other newspapers.

The activists had complained that Sinclair was "placing partisan interest ahead of the public interest" by broadcasting conservative and pro-President Bush commentaries.

Staples spokesman Owen Davis told the Washington Post that "concerns expressed by our customers" regarding Sinclair content was a factor in Staples Inc.'s decision.

The National Center for Public Policy Research has contacted Staples to confirm these facts and to ask if Staples would halt advertising on CBS or other media if it received complaints from customers. It has yet to receive a reply.

During the last presidential election, CBS News ran a fabricated story apparently designed to affect the election, then failed to correct its reporting until long past the point at which it had become a focus of national derision.

"If Staples wants to avoid supporting political media, it should start by boycotting CBS," said National Center President Amy Ridenour. "Sinclair may irritate some on the left by being openly pro-American, but, unlike CBS, it didn't team up with forgers in an attempt to play dirty politics on the eve of the last presidential race."

Additional updates to this story, inclusing any response The National Center receives from Staples, will be made available on The National Center's blog.

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a conservative, free-market organization established in 1982 and located in Washington, D.C. on Capitol Hill For more information, contact David Almasi at (202) 543-4110 or or visit The National Center's website at

Well now, isn't this special. So Staples wants to boycott "conservative" opinion? Well I certainly wont be visiting a Stapples store any time in the near future.
