PBS agrees to ban new religious TV shows
The Public Broadcasting Service agreed yesterday to ban its member stations from airing new religious TV programs, but permitted the handful of stations that already carry "sectarian" shows to continue doing so.

The vote by PBS's board was a compromise from a proposed ban on all religious programming. Such a ban would have forced a few stations around the country to give up their PBS affiliation if they continued to broadcast local church services and religious lectures.

Until now, PBS stations have been required to present programming that is noncommercial, nonpartisan and nonsectarian. But the definition of "nonsectarian" programming was always loosely interpreted, and the rule had never been strictly enforced. ...

But, San Jose John, PBS never has bothered to be fair, it might be good if they were actually non-sectarian -- PBS, Recruiting for Islam. So much fuss was made about their pro-Islamic, pro-Mormon specials perhaps they might have learned their lesson though I doubt it.

In Nebraska PBS has always been free from Christianity, though of course never a viewpoint about it.

This is the same PBS that has Wayne Dyer's new-age nonsense on their fundraisers!? He's not religious!?

Why are taxpayers funding PBS in the Internet era and deficit era, when it's a total waste of money? If you want British comedies, buy the DVDs and let me keep my tax money.

Why does PBS have to beg for money if they're a public broadcaster, sponsored by tax dollars, anyway?

I think it's more than time for archaic state-sponsored media outlets to die in the Internet age. It's not like there's no choice anymore for programming.

Hard to fault them (PBS) for doing this in light of the fact that our culture is increasingly diverse, with so many more different religious perspectives in America today than when PBS was started (back in the 1960s?).

Trying to be "fair" by accommodating all the different religious faiths today would consume much more of PBS's limited resources than would've been required to serve only the few dominant faiths that existed back in the 1960s.
