Legal Briefs: Update to PBS Religious Programming Ban

In an update to a Legal Brief from May 19, PBS announced Tuesday that it would ban member stations from carrying new "sectarian" programs, but in most cases would allow existing programs to continue. This policy, which was a compromise from a proposed ban that would have terminated all such programming, allows stations such as KBYU to remain affiliated with PBS without forcing an immediate change in programming. Washington Post has more.

  1. I hadn't noticed the compromise policy. That sounds like an equitable resolution, at least for now. I'd hate to see a 50-year-old program like "Mass for Shut-Ins" to be cut. Thanks for the update, Sandy.
