Sinclair Broadcasting will show dead U.S. soldiers this time

Sinclair Broadcasting caused several stirs last year. The first was that it refused to let its eight ABC-affiliated stations carry the ABC Nightline report in which the names and photos of all soldiers killed in Iraq and Afghanistan were shown. Last year's program was run on April 30.

This year Nightline plans a repeat, this time showing the names and faces of soldiers killed since May 1 of last year. It will run on Memorial Day.

Sinclair has announced that this year its stations will carry the broadcast. Apparently they feel that Memorial Day is the only day when such a memorial would be appropriate.
