Positive Local News Story

The local CBS news affiliate in San Francisco did a very positive story on atheists in the Bay Area the other night.

All praise Dave Kong, California’s state director for American Atheists!

And his hair. His powerful, powerful hair. It owns me.

By the way, if you go to the American Atheists website, there’s a video message from Ellen Johnson regarding the whole Paula Zahn debacle.

    I sent that CBS affiliate a nice thank you email. I was also impressed with the AA video thanking us for contacting CNN.

    LOL! That’s too funny.

    What a terrific report. It’s amazing how refreshing it is to have a segment that omits include the obligatory minister/priest/rabbi bashing home the “atheists are immoral sinners!” message.

    How nice for once to just see an articulate, kind (if hirsute) atheist speaking about making the world a better place. Leave it to the “liberal media” in San Francisco to give us a chance. ;-)

    I can’t get that Ellen Johnson video to play. Any chance they can you tube it? Or quicktime? Or Windows Media? Or anything more universally playable?

    Fantastic coverage! I couldn’t stop – er, admiring Dave Kong’s hair too. Hey, it can only enhance his very positive, very effective message, right? :)

    I sent a “thank you” message to the station as well. I’m no CBS fan normally, but that story gives me hope that at least the affiliates may have their heads on straight.
