the truth hurts

It may well be that speaking the hard truth winds up hurting an honest Sinclair Exec, according to a post at
The DC Bureau chief of Sinclair Broadcasting, Jon Lieberman, is denouncing his employer’s plan to air an hourlong, unpaid Swift Boat ad later this week, according to the Baltimore Sun.
“It’s biased political propaganda, with clear intentions to sway this election … For me, it’s not about right or left — it’s about what’s right or wrong in news coverage this close to an election.”
Sinclair News VP Joe DeFeo has told Lieberman he risks being canned for speaking out and refusing to participate in the presentation of the ‘documentary.’

Which leads me to an email I got today:
Whatever happened to things like journalistic integrity, bipartisanship, even THE LAW? Sinclair Broadcasting Group seems to have forgotten these important aspects of broadcasting, and is forcing their 62 local stations to air the faux documentary
