Religious Right propaganda shouldn't get free airtime on public television.
Do you think public television should give free airtime to Religious Right propaganda?
Neither did two senior employees of Alabama Public Television who objected to airing a TV series produced by right-wing pseudo-historian David Barton -- a Religious Right activist who supports imprisoning gay people.1
But when they spoke up, they were fired by the Republican-controlled Alabama Educational Television Commission.2
Public television is beloved for featuring entertaining, educational content -- not hatred and lies.
Tell the Alabama Educational Television Commission: Keep Religious Right propaganda off public television.
