Long Live Mike Doss
It deeply disturbs me that this is not going to be shown in some markets. Granted the light it will be shown in will not be one that 'celebrates' the nature of the conflict in iraq, as some might wish it to be, but it is to honor those who have fallen. How can one justify not airing such a program to honor those who have died for their country? It appears that the big wigs at sinclair broadcast group are being swayed by their own political ideologies in not airing this for the public to see. What is being presented shouldn't be looked upon as controversial, but instead as being the truth of the men and women who have fallen. For those who wish not to view it they can always change the channel instead of taking it off the market where some people, like myself, would tune in to put faces to the valor and sacrifice that have been made durring this war. It disgusts me that this is even happening. How would you feel if someone you knew was being honored on this program but you lived in a market where it was not being shown, not being able to witness a tribute to your own son or daughter because some big wig didn’t like the way it conflicted with their own held political beliefs? I think to stop showing a program like this for political motivations, which undoubtedly are behind this, is a foul and vile act by the sinclair broadcast group. It is shame that such motivations could sway these individuals when it comes to something as important as honoring the dead that have fought valiantly for this country.
