 Anti-Kerry documentary to preempt local TV

What liberal media? The RNC-controlled press is at it again.

Sinclair Broadcast Group, which owns the largest chain of TV stations in the United States, plans to shelve regular programming next week to broadcast a documentary accusing Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry of betraying American prisoners during the Vietnam War.

Sinclair has ordered its 62 stations -- some of which are in swing states such as Florida, Iowa, Ohio and Wisconsin -- to show "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal" during prime-time hours two weeks before the Nov. 2 election. The Sinclair station group extends to 24 percent of US television households.

You might recall that this is the same Sinclair that generated headlines last April when it ordered seven of its ABC-affiliated stations not to show a "Nightline" segment that included the reading of the names of US soldiers killed in Iraq, a decision that drew rebukes from John McCain, among others.

"Stolen Honor" deals with Kerry's antiwar testimony to Congress in 1971 and its effect on American POWs in Vietnam. Kerry testified that US forces frequently committed atrocities in Vietnam. The program, produced independently of Sinclair, contains interviews with former prisoners of war.

The report quoted Kerry's campaign spokesman, David Wade, as calling the documentary "lies" and "a smear."
