Why Sinclair is so goddamn evil

“The accusations coming from (DNC Chairman) Terry McAuliffe is that because there’s some elements of this that may reflect poorly on John Kerry, that it’s somehow an in-kind contribution to George Bush; if you use that logic and reasoning, that means every car bomb in Iraq would be considered an in-kind contribution to John Kerry. Weak job performance ratings that came out last month would have been a… in-kind contribution to John Kerry. And that’s just nonsense. This is news. I can’t change the fact that these people decided to come forward today. The networks had this opportunity over a month ago to speak with these people. They chose to suppress them. They chose to ignore them. They are acting like Holocaust deniers, pretending these men don’t exist.”

Sinclair Broadcasting Group exec Mark Hyman on CNN, 12 October 2004

There are no words.
