WSYX-Channel 6 under orders to air Anti-Kerry piece?
Sinclair Broadcast Group is reportedly pushing for broadcast by a conservative group’s anti-Kerry show. Sinclair is pressuring outlets to preempt primetime TV to show it. (I know ABC is desperate for a primetime win but is this really better than According to Jim?) The show is produced by Carlton Sherwood who formerly worked for Tom Ridge in the Homeland Security Department as a media advisor. Wow, talk about Karl Rovian synergy.
I have not seen anything from WSYX on their take on the situation or the airing of “Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal”. WSYX has a feedback site on their website here if you wish to comment. It is possible that they might push back and not air it or place it in primetime.
Background: Sinclair is also the group that forced their ABC stations not to air “The Fallen” episode of Nightline earlier this year.
