America's Next Top....Conservative? -- EW imagines the kind of right-leaning programming Sinclair Broadcasting would air

First, Sinclair Broadcasting was reportedly going to preempt programming on its 62 stations to present Stolen Honor: Wounds That Never Heal, the unabashedly unfavorable look at Sen. John Kerry's war record in Vietnam. Now, after a public outcry and a steep drop in Sinclair's stock price, that preemption has been preempted; instead, on Oct. 22, some 40 of Sinclair's stations will air A POW Story: Politics, Pressure and the Media, a one-hour news special featuring only portions of Stolen Honor. Not exactly an unconditional surrender, but it did get us thinking — what other Sinclair programming might also be left unaired?
