Well, DU goes to GREAT lengths to undermine after-debate polls, etc... and now they're trying to do that with the Stolen Honor program that Sinclair wants to air next week.

Here's the info they posted on DU's homepage:



Help stop Sinclair Broadcasting's anti-Kerry smear!
Posted by Skinner
Added to homepage Mon Oct 11th 2004, 03:43 PM ET

"we do not believe such political statements should be disguised as news content."
- Sinclair Broadcasting Group

The Sinclair Broadcasting Group is putting pressure on their local TV affiliates to preempt primetime programming in order to run the anti-Kerry program, "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal," only days before the November election. The LA Times published this story on Saturday, and many other news outlets have since picked it up.

Sinclair Broadcasting Group and its management have a long history of supporting conservative candidates, through their financial contributions and by using their substantial media power. Today the DNC released this press release which includes a lot of information about partisan activities by Sinclair. The DNC will be filing a complaint with the FEC on Tuesday.

This is the same Sinclair Broadcasting Group that told its affiliates not to show an episode of Nightline earlier this year honoring the men and women of the US Armed Forces who were killed while serving in Iraq. At the time, their explanation was: "we do not believe such political statements should be disguised as news content." You can read the quote yourself here. (Oh, the hypocrisy.)

The decision by Sinclair Broadcasting to run an anti-Kerry smear only days before the presidential election is a clear case of "political statements disguised as news content." It is a clear misuse of their power, a breach of public trust, and a clear violation of campaign finance law.

Help us stop Sinclair from running the anti-Kerry smear by doing the following:

Heard about this broadcast on FNC a little while ago. Funny how the dims can show F-9/11 and other horseshit movies, but if we do, we're breaking elections laws
