COUNTERPOINT EXTRA: "I SHALL CALL HIM 'MINI-HYMAN'"

You might remember that when Sinclair newsman Jon Lieberman dared to speak a word of criticism about the company's plans to air segments of a propaganda film smearing John Kerry and do it under the banner of "news," he was promptly fired.

Well, Sinclair has found a replacement, a Hyman-clone named Don Hammond, and he's already passed his Sinclair "jumping-in" ritual by going after John Kerry with rehashed Swiftboat Veterans for Truth [sic] charges during a newsconference on drilling in ANWAR.

Read about it (and hear the audio!) at Media Matters for America.

You need to remove a duplicated "http://" from today's link for it to work.

By the way, thanks for providing an off-line email address. I will be in touch soon.

I guess Don Hammond must have been in the right place at the right time. I wonder if he was Sinclair's second or lower choice? I am very surprised that they didn't offer the job to Jeff Gannon, or maybe they did and he turned them down. That would be funny. Keep up the good work Ted.
