THEIST_WATCH Msg : 82 Written : 08/23/94 04:54pm From : ROBIN MURRAY-O'HAIR Status : To : ALL Subj : Falwell Censored Falwell Censored? Here's an unusual news story. It seems that WTLV-TV in Jacksonville, Florida, suspended broadcasts of the "Old Time Gospel Hour" on Monday, August 15. The station's president, Ken Tonning, threatened to cancel the show entirely if Falwell continues to focus on political issues in the show. Apparently, complaints against the show mounted when during the show Jerry Falwell began to explicitly describe sexual acts related to a harassment suit filed against President Clinton. *********************************************************************** * * * American Atheists website: http://www.atheists.org * * PO Box 140195 FTP: ftp://ftp.atheists.org * * Austin, TX 78714-0195 * * Voice: (512) 458-1244 Dial-THE-ATHEIST: * * FAX: (512) 467-9525 (512) 458-5731 * * * * Atheist Viewpoint TV: avtv@atheists.org * * Info on American Atheists: info@atheists.org, * * & American Atheist Press include your name and mailing address * * AANEWS -Free subscription: aanews-request@listserv.atheists.org * * and put "info aanews" in message body * * * * This text may be freely downloaded, reprinted, and/other * * otherwise redistributed, provided appropriate point of * * origin credit is given to American Atheists. * * * ***********************************************************************
