So fact check me: Lynch will debate at WCVB but won’t make an ad buy at the station?

Yes, that is true, according to the letter Lynch sent to WCVB this morning, which I admit I didn’t read until now.

If the contract dispute is as Lynch stated a “similar issue [as] arose during my first campaign for Congress in 2001, when I was forced to skip a debate at Fox 25 because I refused to cross a picket line.”

Then how can Lynch, who equates the no contract situation as a “picket line” cross that same picket line and attend the debate?
