Democrats ask FCC to review Sinclair program on Kerry

October 14, 2004|By LOS ANGELES TIMES

NEW YORK - House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California and 84 other House Democrats have asked the Federal Communications Commission to investigate Sinclair Broadcast Group's plans to air Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal, a documentary in which former Vietnam POWs criticize Sen. John Kerry's anti-Vietnam War activities.

Sinclair, which owns or operates 62 TV stations nationwide, plans to air a one-hour broadcast that incorporates the film, which the House Democrats called "anti-Kerry propaganda," next week, just days before the election.

Earlier in the week, 19 Democratic senators also asked the FCC to look into whether the broadcast violates federal regulations.
