er, i mean conservative media: <a href="http://www.boston.com/news/politics/president/kerry/articles/2004/10/10/anti_kerry_film_slated_to_air_on_eve_of_election/">link here</a><br><blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>The conservative-leaning Sinclair Broadcast Group, whose television outlets reach nearly a quarter of the nation's homes with TV, is ordering its stations to preempt regular programming just days before the Nov. 2 election to air a film that attacks Senator John F. Kerry's activism against the Vietnam War, network and station executives familiar with the plan said Friday.<br><br>Sinclair's programming plan, communicated to executives in recent days and coming in the thick of a close and intense presidential race, is highly unusual even in a political season that has been marked by media controversies.<br><br>Sinclair has told its stations -- many of them in political swing states such as Ohio and Florida -- to air ''Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal," sources said. The film, funded by Pennsylvania veterans and produced by a veteran and former Washington Times reporter, features former POWs accusing Kerry -- a decorated Navy veteran turned war protester -- of worsening their ordeal by prolonging the war. Sinclair will preempt regular prime-time programming from the networks to show the film, which may be classified as news programming, according to TV executives familiar with the plan.<p><hr></blockquote><p>i believe this is the same group that forced it's stations to not show Ted Koppel's tribute to US war dead in iraq, because they claimed it was partisan. what a bunch of wackos.<br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
Sinclair might have a rude awakening this week. Here's the latest from the Yahoo finance message board about SBGI's stock ... everyone's saying SELL SELL SELL!<br><br>Shareholders are going to be pissed because Sinclair's blatant partisanship is driving down the company value.
