Announcement of American Atheists
American Atheists is excited to announce what is believed to be the first atheism-dedicated television channel, Atheist TV.
In partnership with Internet-streaming service Roku, which offers devices similar to cable boxes to bring hundreds of channels of content to your TV, American Atheists will bring together dozens of atheist content creators, including The Richard Dawkins Foundation, to present the first on-demand television station that presents exclusively atheist, humanist, and freethought programming. In addition, American Atheists is making available its recently-digitized historic video archives spanning more than 50 years of activism.
It is really a crying shame that something like American Atheist TV is necessary to give an objective and skeptical counter balance to all the religious bias and propaganda on the USA TV network
In the Netherlands where I live in Europe, the objectivity of the commercial TV channels and the several Broadcasting Associations participating in Dutch Public TV is a matter of honor..
Here we have this unwritten code of integrity where it comes to bringing the news and even the few Evangelical broadcasters honor that code because distorting news would be like committing public confidence suicide..
Since this announcement I have been battling several fanatic believers about the necessity of such a TV channel in the USA in the context of the multitude of religion and religiously biased channels like ... mostly ALL of them..
And I constantly have to explain myself why I am so aversive to Christianity and religion in general..
