Free Speech -- for some
There is more (as InstaPundit calls out) at Just One Minute if you need more information.
Stolen Honor -- Wounds That Never Heal is the subject of all the consternation in the Kerry Campaign. Take a look at their press release regarding this 42 minute DVD. The phrase that stuck out to us was, " Sinclair Broadcasting Group: Consistent Anti-Kerry, Pro-Bush Programming." This terse phrase appears under the heading, FACT SHEET. H-m-m-m, what could that mean?
If you go to Sinclair's website, you will see that Sinclair's television group includes 20 FOX, 19 WB, 6 UPN, 8 ABC, 3 CBS, 4 NBC affiliates, and 2 independent stations and reaches approximately 24% of all U.S. television households. Given the programming of these networks, what could "consistent pro-bush programming" be -- Survivor?
You see, 76% of all U.S. households would not have been seeing Stolen Honor -- Wounds That Never Heal. So why would the Kerry Campaign be so freightened by the fact that 24% of U.S. households might get to see this documentary? Note, might. They could have been watching baseball, the NFL, some reality show, or Stolen Honor -- Wounds That Never Heal.
What to do? Don't you want to see this thing now? Don't you want to know what was so inflammatory, that the Kerry campaign did not want 24% of U.S. households to have the opportunity to see this documentary? Not even the OPPORTUNITY? Well, you can. And, we suggest that you do. You can go to Stolen Honor -- Wounds That Never Heal's website and buy the DVD. If money is tight, you can get a bunch of your friends to pitch in. Then, get a case or three of Mousehead and cook up some Texas Chili, put on the DVD, and have some fun. You can even invite Kerry supporters. They'll at least like the Chili and the Mousehead.
