David D. Smith, president and chief executive officer of Sinclair Broadcast Group, was arrested this week in his hometown of Baltimore and charged with a misdemeanor sex offense. Sinclair owns WPGH, the Fox affiliate in Pittsburgh, and programs most of WPTT.

The Baltimore Sun reported that Smith, 45, was arrested Tuesday night in an undercover sting at a downtown corner frequented by prostitutes.

On Thursday night, Sinclair issued a statement that Smith's arrest was unrelated to company business and ''The company will continue to operate under the direction of its current management.''
He also has a police account of the incident where Smith got his horn honked while he was driving his Mercedes, thereby putting other drivers in danger. Another bit of proof that when Clinton got HIS horn honked, lives were not in jeopardy.

If Smith didn't have to pay for it, Nightline would ride tonight on his stations. Instead, he's just another uptight morally bankrupt wingnut.
