Oldie but a Goodie: Original WKRP on Censorship.
Really worth the watch. A great argument against the Christian Right.

Original music too.

2. Thank you. That was a great episode.

But it also makes me wonder about leftist economic boycotts too.

4. I love these blasts from the past
especially the ones from WKRP. It was one of my dad's favorite shows of all time and a real point of reference between us, since we'd both had to deal with most of the characters.

Preacher Bob was pure Falwell, as smarmy as they come. Great episode.

7. The actor played Falwell in The People Vs. Larry Flint.
He was almost a dead ringer.

12. Well
GE bought NBC, Disney bought ABC, and Viacom gobbled CBS

6. Sadly, still relevent 30 years later.
I, naively, thought we would be past this by now.

8. Shows like that warned us. Now these people are controlling pieces of government.
And have made abortion impossible.
