Station
 
Manager
 
Dear
 
Sir
 
or
 
Madam:
 
Our
 
firm
 
is
 
writing
 
on
 
behalf 
 
of 
 
our
 
client,
 
the
 
Republican
 
Party
 
of 
 
Florida.
 
Your
 
station
 
is
 
currently
 
airing
 
an
 
advertisement
 
sponsored
 
by
 
the
 
Florida
 
Democratic
 
Party
 
(the
 
“FDP”)
 
that
 
contains
 
false,
 
misleading,
 
and
 
defamatory
 
information
 
about
 
Rick
 
Scott,
 
the
 
sitting
 
governor
 
and
 
current
 
candidate
 
for
 
re
election
 
to
 
the
 
Office
 
of 
 
Governor
 
of 
 
Florida.
 
As
 
you
 
know,
 
your
 
station’s
 
obligation
 
to
 
serve
 
the
 
public
 
interest
 
requires
 
you
 
to
 
decline
 
to
 
air
 
false
 
and
 
misleading
 
advertising,
 
and
 
unlike
 
an
 
advertisement
 
aired
 
by
 
a
 
candidate,
 
your
 
station
 
can
 
be
 
held
 
liable
 
for
 
distributing
 
defamatory
 
messages.
 
With
 
this
 
letter,
 
your
 
station
 
is
 
on
 
notice
 
that
 
the
 
FDP
 
advertisement
 
includes
 
false
 
and
 
misleading
 
accusations
 
that
 
are
 
defamatory.
 
Your
 
station
 
must
 
cease
 
and
 
desist
 
from
 
airing
 
this
 
advertisement.
 
I.
 
THE
 
FDP
 
ADVERTISEMENT
 
CONTAINS
 
INTENTIONALLY
 
FALSE
 
AND
 
MISLEADING
 
STATEMENTS
 
The
 
sole
 
intent
 
of 
 
the
 
FDP’s
 
advertisement
 
is
 
to
 
intentionally
 
mislead
 
and
 
deliberately
 
deceive
 
the
 
viewing
 
public
 
into
 
believing
 
that,
 
as
 
part
 
of 
 
a
 
previous
 
federal
 
investigation,
 
Rick
 
Scott
 
invoked
 
his
 
Constitutional
 
Fifth
 
Amendment
 
right
 
not
 
to
 
give
 
testimony
 
against
 
himself 
 
to
 
avoid
 
answering
 
dozens
 
of 
 
direct
 
questions
 
about
 
Columbia/HCA’s
 
attempts
 
to
 
defraud
 
the
 
Medicare
 
program.
 
The
 
FDP‘s
 
characterization
 
is
 
patently
 
false.
 
The
 
FDP,
 
through
 
the
 
deceptively
 
clever
 
use
 
of 
 
the
 
lower
 
screen
 
television
 
graphics,
 
manipulates
 
and
 
displays
 
highly
 
suggestive
 
newspaper
 
quotes
 
which
 
are
 
baldly
 
taken
 
out
 
of 
 
context
 
and
 
spliced
 
together
 
in
 
an
 
attempt
 
to
 
intentionally
 
mislead
 
viewers,
 
as
 
follows:
 
 
RICK 
 
SCOTT 
 
 
“the
 
largest 
 
Medicare
 
 fraud 
 
in
 
history 
 
 
happened 
 
on
 
his
 
watch” 
 
 
Orlando
 
Sentinel 
 
8/8/10
 
 
RICK 
 
SCOTT 
 
 
“ran
 
a
 
company 
 
that 
 
was
 
 fined 
 
a
 
record 
 
$1.7 
 
billion” 
 
 
St.
 
Petersburg
 
Times
 
8/8/10
 
 
RICK 
 
SCOTT 
 
 
took 
 
the
 
5th
 
75
 
times
 
 
The
 
Miami 
 
Herald 
 
9/18/10,
 
St.
 
Petersburg
 
Times
 
9/18/10,
 
Orlando
 
Sentinel 
 
8/21/10
 
 
 
2
 ‐
The
 
truth
 
is
 
Rick
 
Scott
 
avoided
 
answering
 
questions
 
when
 
being
 
deposed
 
in
 
2000
 
about
 
a
 
completely
 
unrelated
 
breach
 
of 
 
contract
 
civil 
 
case
 
between
 
his
 
former
 
company
 
Columbia/HCA
 
and
 
Nevada
 
Communications
 
Corp.
 
Rick
 
Scott
 
was
 
never
 
deposed
 
by
 
federal
 
investigators
 
in
 
the
 
criminal
 
case
 
involving
 
his
 
former
 
company
.
 
It
 
is
 
critical
 
to
 
note
 
that
 
the
 
FDP
 
so
 
severely
 
manipulated,
 
falsified,
 
and
 
took
 
the
 
last
 
bullet
 
point
 
narrative
 
graphic
 
out
 
of 
 
context
 
that
 
it
 
dared
 
not
 
attribute
 
the
 
language
 
as
 
quoted
 
material
 
from
 
the
 
stated
 
sources.
 
The
 
truth
 
of 
 
that
 
information
 
regarding
 
the
 
last
 
above
 
bullet
 
point
 
having
 
nothing
 
to
 
do
 
with
 
the
 
Columbia/HCA
 
Medicare
 
matter
 
is,
 
and
 
has
 
been,
 
widely
 
and
 
publicly
 
known
 
for
 
years.
 
(
See
 
attached
 
June
 
19,
 
2014,
 
FactCheck.org
 
article).
 
Consequently,
 
t
 
here
 
can
 
be
 
no
 
other
 
reasonable
 
explanation
 
than
 
by
 
its
 
actions
 
demonstrated
 
above,
 
the
 
FDP
 
knew,
 
when
 
taken
 
as
 
a
 
whole,
 
those
 
statements
 
are
 
false,
 
or,
 
alternatively,
 
the
 
FDP
 
acted
 
in
 
reckless
 
disregard
 
of 
 
their
 
truth
 
or
 
falsity.
 
II.
 
CONCLUSION
 
Because
 
your
 
station
 
is
 
responsible
 
for
 
the
 
airing
 
of 
 
any
 
advertisement
 
known
 
to
 
you
 
to
 
be
 
false,
 
we
 
urge
 
you
 
to
 
remove
 
this
 
advertisement
 
from
 
your
 
broadcast
 
schedule
 
immediately
 
and
 
further
 
request
 
that
 
you
 
reject
 
any
 
attempts
 
by
 
the
 
FDP
 
to
 
purchase
 
time
 
for
 
the
 
future
 
airing
 
of 
 
this
 
advertisement
 
because
 
of 
 
its
 
material
 
misstatements
 
of 
 
fact
 
and
 
misleading
 
in
 
nature.
 
You
 
are
 
hereby
 
put
 
on
 
notice
 
that
 
the
 
advertisement
 
is
 
false
 
and
 
misleading.
 
Unlike
 
candidates,
 
independent
 
political
 
organizations
 
or
 
parties,
 
such
 
as
 
the
 
FDP,
 
do
 
not
 
have
 
a
 
“right
 
to
 
command
 
the
 
use
 
of 
 
broadcast
 
facilities
.”

Because
 
you
 
need
 
not
 
air
 
this
 
advertisement,
 
your
 
station
 
is
 
not
 
protected
 
from
 
legal
 
liability
 
for
 
its
 
content
 
when
 
you
 
do
 
grant
 
access
 
to
 
your
 
facilities.

Not
 
only
 
would
 
your
 
failure
 
to
 
immediately
 
cease
 
the
 
airing
 
of 
 
this
 
advertisement
 
and
 
your
 
consequent
 
rebroadcasting
 
of 
 
this
 
false
 
and
 
misleading
 
advertisement
 
expose
 
your
 
station
 
significant
 
legal
 
liability,
 
but
 
it
 
would
 
also
 
be
 
doing
 
a
 
grave
 
disservice
 
to
 
the
 
viewing
 
public.
 
Please
 
contact

or

to
 
advise
 
us
 
as
 
to
 
whether
 
your
 
station
 
will
 
no
 
longer
 
be
 
airing
 
this
 
advertisement.

Thank
 
you

immediate
 
response.
