NewsMax.com has broken the media’s censorship of the controversial documentary “Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal” and has begun airing the film on national television. Beginning Saturday morning, NewsMax began airing the documentary directed by award-winning journalist Carlton Sherwood on national networks and in local networks across the nation.

Sherwood’s account of John Kerry’s activities as a leader of the Vietnam anti-war movement has infuriated the Kerry campaign.


“Very simply, the press has accepted everything John Kerry has said for the past 33 years,” Sherwood said, explaing the media’s reluctance to air his film or offer the public a detailed account of its charges. “They have never challenged him. They never challenged him in ’71. They are afraid to do so now because they might discover that over three decades they were wrong about him and his war allegations.”

"Stolen Honor" aired on PAX-TV twice Saturday. PAX-TV, one of the nation's largest TV networks, reaches approximately 90 million homes.


The documentary will air 10 times on PAX alone during this weekend, including showings at Sunday at 11AM and 4PM EST/PST.

In addition to national networks like PAX, NewsMax will be airing ‘Stolen Honor’ this weekend on numerous local stations across the nation, including ABC, CBS and NBC affiliates.


NewsMax.com decision to air the censored program was based on the film’s news worthiness. After a flurry of controversy earlier this month, Sinclair Broadcasting aired only four minutes of the 43 minute documentary.


In a statement, NewsMax explained its action by noting that it “was critically important for the American people to hear the accounts of 17 American POWs and their claim that John Kerry and his anti-war activities betrayed them and the country.”


Also, EchoStar Communications which operates the DISH satellite network announced that on Monday, November 1, it will offer Carlton Sherwood’s documentary available on a pay per view basis.


DISH said "Stolen Honor" will be available to more than 10 million customers for $9.95 on channel 457 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time and channel 455 at 8 p.m. Pacific Time.

"We are pleased to provide our customers a variety of political films and documentaries so they can make informed choices," said Susan Arnold, vice president of Programming at EchoStar's DISH Network.

I had some guys at work borrow my DVD - Stolen Valor this past week - the unedited DVD version of the film and I swear about 10 Coasties wanted to kick Kerry's ass at work.......If Kerry gets elected, he will never get respect from any real man in the military.....of course we had to limp dick liberals who had made up their mind that the DVD was propaganda without watching it or anything
