David Brock statement on Sinclair announcement

››› ››› MEDIA MATTERS STAFF

"Sinclair Broadcast Group's statement this afternoon -- that it will not air the anti-Kerry film Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal in its entirety without commercial interruption this Thursday -- is a step toward addressing the concerns voiced in recent days by Media Matters for America and many others. MMFA had announced its intention to underwrite a shareholder action against the company in the event that Sinclair had not altered its plans by 5 p.m. today. We will be watching to see if Sinclair fulfills its stated pledge to air an impartial newscast in place of the anti-Kerry communication, and we trust that all sides of the issues addressed will be fairly and equally represented. I hope that the broadcast Sinclair is planning to air on Friday will meet the concerns of advocates for quality media and shareholders alike."
