FCAT has right to schedule diverse content

In regards to the Foothill Community Access Television, it has been my experience that the station does not put forward any viewpoint other than those that interested community members wish to invest their time and energy into.

It is, after all, a community forum. It may be that the Unitarian Church has been seen on FCAT, not due to some gay, left-wing agenda, but because the church lives by the same value of community involvement.

FCAT, as well as all the other local media, offers some content that I am not much interested in, but as an American I will fight for the right of FCAT’s volunteers to continue to broadcast as diverse a schedule as possible. FCAT is scheduling shows, not as a “hatred of America” as recently written to The Union, but shows instead an embodiment of the American ideals of free speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion. If supporting these ideals is radical and demonic, then watch out for the horns that will surely soon sprout from my forehead.
