Sinclair Says Will Not Air Kerry Show in Entirety

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc., under widening scrutiny over

plans to air a documentary about Sen. John Kerry's wartime activities 30 years ago, said on Tuesday it would not show the program in its entirety.

"Contrary to numerous inaccurate political and press accounts, the Sinclair stations will not be airing the documentary 'Stolen Honor' in its entirety," the Baltimore-based company said in a statement.

Sinclair said it would air a special news program on Friday called "A POW Story:

Politics, Pressure and the Media" that would discuss the allegations surrounding

Kerry's anti-Vietnam War activities.
