Corporate law maven Stephen Bainbridge writes:

Sinclair Broadcasting Group Inc., which owns 60-odd TV stations in many major US media markets, has ordered its stations to preempt ordinary programming in order to air “Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal,” a film about Senator John Kerry’s Vietnam record that many regard as being anti-Kerry.
