Sinclair backs down...sort of

Sinclair Broadcast Group has found its bottom line. Under mounting political, legal, and financial pressure (Sinclair's stock has dropped more than 15 percent since they announced they were going to air the anti-Kerry crockumentary "Stolen Honor"), the company has backed away from its plan, saying it would air only portions of the movie in an hour-long special scheduled for Friday.

The title of the hour-long special? "A POW Story: Politics, Pressure and the Media." Sinclair says it will feature footage from "Stolen Honor" and other political documentaries while examining allegations of media bias.

Sounds to us like Sinclair has seen the error of their offensive ways...and is going on the defensive.
