Public Interest Decided by Sinclair Broadcasting "John"

So, David D. Sinclair, moral authority that he is, .::announced::. that Nightline's Ted Koppel is politically motivated because his show .::this evening::. will consist of reading all the names of US soldiers killed in Iraq —I believe it's strictly those deemed "killed in combat", not suicide, friendly fire, illness, or accident. As a result, it is not in the "public interest" to air this particular show, and his company will not allow it to be broadcast on its networks.

How would he know what is in the public interest when he didn't ask the public, nor did he know (or didn't care) that having oral sex .::with a prostitute::. is illegal?

David D. Smith, president and chief executive officer of Sinclair Broadcast Group, was arrested this week in his hometown of Baltimore and charged with a misdemeanor sex offense. Sinclair owns WPGH, the Fox affiliate in Pittsburgh, and programs most of WPTT.

The Baltimore Sun reported that Smith, 45, was arrested Tuesday night in an undercover sting at a downtown corner frequented by prostitutes.

On Thursday night, Sinclair issued a statement that Smith's arrest was unrelated to company business and ''The company will continue to operate under the direction of its current management.''
