The Book of Daniel - Cancelled!

Tuesday, January 24, 2006

Does "Speaking Up" Make a Difference? Apparently So.

It is easy some times to wonder if speaking up about an issue is worth it. Sometimes you wonder if by talking about a controversial issue, the controversy itself helps the thing that is controversial. It is encouraging to learn that the voices of the people have made a difference in the case of NBC's The Book of Daniel.

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an article about a new TV show on NBC called The Book of Daniel. The title of my article was called NBC's Newest Venture into Blasphemy and it explained some of the issues regarding this show.

Thankfully, there were many others who felt the same way and called and wrote their local NBC affiliates and the advertisers and NBC has cancelled the show.

I don't have a lot to say about it right now and I working on a bigger post, but I heard this today (HT: Jason Steffens - a poster at SharperIron). The article that Jason links to a World Net Daily really gives a lot more details on the story, the controversy and the decision to cancel it. It is called NBC Pulls the Plug on the Book of Daniel and is worth a look if you want more information.
