The Fallen
Fallout on the BFEE Sinclair Broadcasting/Nightline controversy:

"The Nightline broadcast is an expression of respect which simply seeks to honor those who have laid down their lives for this country."

'Some of the stations have received many calls and e-mails in response to Sinclair's decision. "I have not gotten one positive response," said an assignment desk editor at WSYX, the ABC station in Columbus, Ohio.'

Update: John McCain has issued a letter today to the president and CEO of Sinclair Broadcasting, protesting their decision to preempt the program: "I find deeply offensive Sinclair's objection to Nightline's intention to broadcast the names and photographs of Americans who gave their lives in service to our country in Iraq..."
