TV is both cause and effect in the battle for hearts and minds of the public.  (Ref: Sam Harris interview on PoI podcasts).

Fundies have been wielding a lot of power in what subject matter is fair game on network TV.  Consider The Book of Daniel.  Okay, cancelled just as much cuz it was bad, but…

My recent post in "General Discussion" speaks to this.  Just mentioning it here because some folks may be primarily interested in secularism, so just checking this area.

Won’t go into detail here.  See my post (NBC Goes Skeptical…BIG TIME)in General.

In brief, Law & Order beat the crap out of spiritual healing and Crossing Jordan slammed religious fanaticism.

Also, House (NBC this Tuesday night) will also be featuring Science vs Religious fanaticism.

Apologies if such multi-posting is bad etiquette.

I must say I’m not nearly as sanguine as you on any turning tide in TV programming ... but I suppose we can all use some good news once in awhile ...
