BALTIMORE – Sinclair Broadcast fired its Washington bureau chief, saying he revealed company business when he discussed its upcoming program on a documentary critical of John Kerry's anti-Vietnam War activities.

Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. said in a statement late Monday that it fired reporter Jon Leiberman and that "we are disappointed that Jon's political views caused him to violate company policy and speak to the press about company business."

In his initial remarks, published Monday by the Baltimore Sun, Leiberman called the Sinclair show "biased political propaganda, with clear intentions to sway this election." Leiberman said he was fired Monday by Joseph DeFeo, Sinclair's vice president for news, and escorted out of the company's headquarters in Hunt Valley, Md.

"I was told I violated company policy by divulging information from a staff meeting" to the Sun, Leiberman said late Monday.
Biased political agenda? What do you think?

Personally, if it is I think it is too late. Almost all folks have made up their mind already.

I am going to see Sean Hannity on Friday. I hope I do not forget to set the recorder.
