Blast from the Past: Carlton Sherwood

Carlton Sherwood, a former Washington Times reporter--who wrote a supposedly independent book, Inquisition: The Persecution and Prosecution of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, that was critical of the government's tax fraud conviction of Moon--gained notoriety when PBS's Frontline obtained documents showing that Moon and Unification Church officials vetted Sherwood's manuscript (Quick note: I discuss Sherwood's book briefly here).

In 2004, Sherwood produced a film Stolen Honor, a film version of the Swift Boat attacks on John Kerry's military record.

Anyway, the blog EmptyWheel discusses a Sherwood connection in the McCain/Iseman story.
