Adelphia Cable TV is in the midst of a massive nationwide campaign against programs that deal with sexuality in any way. If you are a viewer of The Dr. Susan Block Show in the Adelphia area, you have probably noticed that in the past few months, our programs have been censored, broadcast with all of the images blacked out, or simply taken off the air. The censor is Adelphia. Adelphia is censoring us for sexual and political content. This is unconstitutional and in flagrant violation of Supreme Court rulings that prohibit cable operators from censoring public access programming. Unlike most public access producers who are intimidated by Adelphia's chilling actions, we are fighting them.
If you would like to express your disapproval of Adelphia's attempts at censorship, please call John J. Rigas, Chairman, CEO & Founder of Adelphia, and Robert Whitthauer, Adelphia Acting Counsel, at 814.274.9830.
If you would like to voice your opinion on a local level, please call Bill Rosendahl, Adelphia Regional VP for Southern California. His telephone number is 310.315.4442.
If you would like more information about the situation, please call us at 213.749.1330. Ask for Max. Or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
