On November 9th the NETA satellite system will be transmitting "Fear and
Favor in the Newsroom." This means that virtually all PBS affiliates will
have the opportunity to record and broadcast it if they choose. FAIR is
urging media critics and activists everywhere to contact the program
directors at their local PBS stations and urge them to air this revealing
documentary. (Please see complete satellite information at bottom.)

"Fear and Favor in the Newsroom" is an incisive critique of media
self-censorship, based on testimonials from mainstream journalists who have
witnessed it first-hand. The film offers just the sort of solid
documentation needed by media critics and activists working to raise
awareness of the dangers of corporate control and censorship.

PLEASE JOIN US in urging your local public television station to air this
documentary now.

While you're on the phone with your local PBS program director, you can tell
them that the  NETA Satellite will be transmitting "Fear and Favor" at 7pm,
on Sunday, November 9th.

For further information contact the film-makers, Beth Sanders and Randy
Baker, by phone (206) 325-3744; or e-mail them at
