It's as good as we're going to get, that's for sure.

The Democrats have scared the living hell out of every entitity on the face of this earth.

Boycott spineless Sinclair Broadcasting. The entire program was a John Kerry rebuttal. These cowards backed down from exposing the TRUTH.


Boycott their advertisers and sell their stock.

People who trashed the show aren't trolls. I just watched it and am in shock.

There were a few clips from Stolen Honor. They spent more time talking about the opposing view than they did the clips.

Then they discussed President Bush and the whole thing with the Air National Guard.

The rest of the time they spoke about the effect of media on the elections.

Overall, THOROUGHLY DISAPPOINTING.

I thought there'd be mostly clips from the movie and then some discussion.

I think Sinclair caved IMHO.

BOO.

New here, hi everyone!

Seriously though, I'm mad. This is stupid, and it's not making Kerry look bad. Then they showed a little hit piece on President Bush. Did Sinclair cave or what??



SINCLAIR CAVED! SAD BUT TRUE! MAKES ME ILL THAT THE TRUTH ABOUT KERRY IS STILL NOT GETTING OUT TO THE PUBLIC! If Kerry wins this election we are moving to Panama! It wouldn't be safe here! I'm praying for President Bush!

The libs must really be scared if they signed up just to try and tell us what to think of the show.

Bets, it's not just liberals signing up; it's the part of the right wing GOP that hopes Bush loses, too.

Just finished watchin' The POW Story really was a cave by Sinclair. It was as heart breaking as it was watchin' Kerry and Fonda upon my return from NAM. They almost made Kerry out to be a hero for his part after his experience in Vietnam. The man was a liar then and still. It is a shame people can not see through the charade.

It's fine for what it is; some of you expect Kerry to be drug to the Mall in D.C. and burned at the stake. Be happy this much got on; it's sure as hell more than anywhere else has run.

Screw you. This was supposed to finally provide a voice to those who have been ignored. Instead, it made them look like the blithering, drug-addled, PTSD-inflicted dolts that Kerry and his ilk have wanted them to look like for the last 30 years. It did more damage to them than the silence of the networks has for 30 years.

What did you expect? No station in their right mind is going to run a complete hit piece -- especially one that WE think is good enough -- against John Kerry at this time of the election cycle.

You should have known that it would never satisfy us.

Man you guys are tough...

If you've been here for so long, then you knew what to expect. I will agree with you that Sinclair sucks, but 'Stolen Honor' will be seen and discussed, and Kerry will be on the defensive for the next few days.

it was TERRIBLE......more than one sided for Kerry...maybe 10 minutes about the POWS, and they still had Kerrys people there to carry on his side...then some girl did a piece on the ads for campaigns and it was ALL a Kerry fest...everytime as she was talking in the background one of the Swift Boat Vets ad would be up there, a big red LIARS would be over them...
it didnt even show his book, which would have been really relevent to the POW story, NOTHING......
piece of crap backstabbers

I don't believe I'll email the FCC on behalf of Sinclair. I don't want to defend them right now. They're on their own. I may feel differently come tomorrow but not now.

Exactly where is that posted?

Are you sure that isn't what you HOPED it would do?

If you had been listening to the Sinclair people all over TV this week, you would have known that it was going to be like this.

My wife and I feel completely duped. As far as we are concerned, the title of the "documentary" is a sham. If I had had any idea this piece of tripe was so pathetically produced and so partisan, I wouldn't have watched it. Kerry wasn't man enough to face the POW's who got all of about one tenth of the program to discuss their feelings.

Did you notice that there were no sponsors for the program, only commercials for other Sinclair Broadcasting programs?

The only thing missing from this piece of garbage rationalizing Kerry's lies, behavior and lack of integrity was his voice at the end stating, "I'm John Kerry and I endorse this commercial".

I seriously wonder if it wasn't planned all along to hype this as an attack piece when in reality it was actually an attack piece against our President and ridiculously pro-Kerry !

Disgusting.

There is a down side about knowing too much about John Kerry. And, it's disappointing when you want the world to know and there is no way to get it out there. I tell everyone that I can get ahold of, but it just a drop in the bucket.

This was a terrible mistake for Sinclair. By choosing both sides they decided to pull a Kerry move.. and now they are hated by both sides..

You have to be a newbie though I agree with your assessment of the show....it was awful.

Only a newbie would not know that Howlin is the Grand Dame of this forum and that you should mind your manners.....

Anyone can say they've been lurking since the BB days.


Who really was the Cruiser? and all his other names?

Clarity?...ring a bell?

Who do we all miss the most? +++

Who dwelled in deep woods...sort of...lol

Who was really a man?

Who got busted cheating on spouse?

Who was the atheist Mormon?

Who was Howlin's nemesis?

Who was the Gore supporting South basher so long tolerated here?

Who are the 2 or 3 meanest freepers to tangle with?

Who was named after an obscure German hero?

Who's the King?

Who was big here and left to do their own gig?

What's Sean's sidekicks' username here?

Who are our two or three biggest authors?

You answer all those and I'll agree you're not a newbie.

who owns the rights to this short film? how did Sinclair get it, did they buy the rights? and did that give them the right to carve it up. they should have just asked for donations, and bought a private channel slot on direcTV, and shown it there.

now that the film is being streamed (who posted it there?), they ought to try and get ifilm.com to pick it up too.

I thought the program was ingenuous ... on the surface, very well-balanced. Anyone filing suit will be hard-pressed to call it ended, or an in-kind donation; BUT, it got on the air the side of the story the MSM has failed to show. All the pro-Kerry stuff has been paraded before us before via the MSM, but Sinclair got the stuff the MSM has spiked on the air, without having ANY chance of being called unbalanced ... If a suit comes to pass, show this and ANY 60 Minutes episode side-by-side to a jury and it will be apparent which is biased --- but we finally got air time for the stuff the MSM has covered up ...
