    10/23/2004 6:41:00 AM PDT · by ArmyBratCutie · 62 replies · 1,587+ views ^ | Oct 23,3004 | Sinclair Broadcasting We welcome your comments regarding the special news event “A POW Story: Politics, Pressure and the Media,” Sinclair’s third news special of 2004.

    After stirring up protest over its plans to broadcast a documentary critical of Senator John Kerry, the Sinclair Broadcast Group presented a program last night that gave short shrift to that film and offered instead a measured analysis of the debate over Mr. Kerry's Vietnam War record. The hourlong special program, produced by the news department at Sinclair, a major financial supporter of Republican candidates and which regularly features conservative commentary on its newscasts, included as many backers of Mr. Kerry as critics. Sinclair's producers seemed to go out of their way to create a balanced political collage in the...

    Sinclair Broadcast Group last night aired a program that sharply criticized John Kerry over Vietnam, with the anchor declaring: "Some people are trying to suppress the right to free speech." After two weeks of accusations of partisan bias, the hour-long special led off with Carlton Sherwood, who produced the anti-Kerry film "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal," saying: "What is John Kerry's campaign afraid of?"

    At the last minute, Sinclair Broadcasting has reshuffled the broadcast schedule for their program on "Stolen Honor" and now call it "A POW Story: Politics, Pressure and the Media". The new schedule and content of the program is described in the Sinclair press release shown below in post #1. The original press release can be seen by clicking the "Sinclair Broadcasting" source above. FL_engineer and I had spent many hours tracking down the old, now obsolete schedule from the individual Sinclair TV station web sites and other internet TV directories. This information was posted frequently on Free Republic. That seems...

    "Stolen Honor" Morphs Into Broader Sinclair Documentary  The long-awaited Sinclair Broadcasting Company production about "Stolen Honor" was, according to a company press release, always intended to be a documentary in the customary sense of the term.

Bush and the Republican Party. Tonight they supported him with millions of dollars of air time devoted to an anti-Kerry smear aimed at influencing the election. Sinclair gave lip service to the first amendment but fired an honest journalist working for Sinclair who spoke out against their smear. Sinclair's...

    Sinclair Broadcast Group, which has been vilified in many places regarding its decision to air a special one-hour news program, entitled "A POW Story: Politics, Pressure and the Media," was gratified to read an article published by the New York Times newspaper on Thursday, October 21, 2004, advocating the broadcast of the documentary, "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal." The company issued a press release Friday noting that this the third news special of 2004 "Stolen Honor" will be discussed in the Sinclair news special, but it was erroneous news reports indicating that Sinclair intended to broadcast the documentary in...
