Religious Broadcasting Rumor Denied

Madalyn Murray O'Hair

A rumor has been circulating since 1975 that Madalyn Murray O'Hair, a widely known, self-proclaimed atheist, proposed that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) consider limiting or banning religious programming. This rumor is not true. It also has been circulated repeatedly that Ms. O'Hair was granted an FCC hearing to discuss that proposal. This too is untrue.

The latest version of this rumor is traveling by email and starts:  Subject: JAMES DOBSON PETITION -- VERY IMPORTANT and says: "Dr. Dobson is going on CNBC to urge every Christian to get involved."

This is simply not true.
