Stolen Honor Update
Sinclair has ordered its 62 stations to air "Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal" without commercials in prime time next week, just two weeks before the Nov. 2 election. Twelve of those stations are in key battleground states of Ohio, Florida, Iowa and Wisconsin."
20 Democratic senators have filed complaints with the FCC (see the list here). Democrat bigwig Terry McAuliffe Says " "This is a group that is going to preempt their airtime to run a 90-minute documentary attacking Senator Kerry," McAuliffe said on CNN's American Morning. "This is a use of corporate funds. Under the law, you cannot use corporate funds to go out there and advocate for a party or a political candidate." The Democrats also plans to file a complaint with the Federal Election Commission.
The Republicans Ken Mehlman had this to say ""the Bush-Cheney campaign has suffered its share of media attacks and didn't file any complaints.
"We had ("Fahrenheit 9/11" documentary creator) Michael Moore, we had CBS, which they had false documents. Having experienced over the course of a number of years what I consider to be a media bias in some cases I'm not in the business of dealing with filing complaints against media organizations," he told CNN, adding that he was not familiar with the documentary Sinclair will broadcast.""
The interesting part to me is Sinclair wants Kerry to come in and address the issue face to face. That is a tough one for ole JFK, looking at these former POW's and let's throw in a few Swift Boat Vet's too.
To me, this is as valid as the CBS story on Bush and the Guard, only we are not relying on papers or hidden sources, but film of Kerry's actions and words against real live Hero's with enough Medal's to sink a small ship. I am fair and I believe a man has the RIGHT to face his accuser's. What about it John? Bush Faces such everyday. He has been to the hospitals and saw the troops and their families. That is what we expect out of our leader. Some will say Bush did not admit mistakes at the debate. Why should he? He faces the troops and families, history will judge, and in Kerry's words "the outcome will determine whether it was right or wrong."
