[Letter from Campbell B. Read to Station Manager of KVTT-FM 91.7, "Request for Equal Time" - May 14, 1983]

Description: Letter from Campbell B. Read, Ph.D. to the Station Manager of the Christian radio station KVTT 91.7 FM in Dallas. Dr. Read is requesting equal time to respond to certain claims made by Dr. Paul Cameron, Dr. Clem Mueller, and a vice officer of the Dallas Police Department on the "Point of View" talk radio program on May 13, 1983. The topic of the talk show was the health aspects of homosexual behavior. Read writes that the Federal Communications Commission requires that radio stations give equal time for rebuttal if "questionable, if not slanderous, statements are made about [minority] groups". Read, who holds a Ph. D. in Statistics, challenges the claims made by the guests on the talk show and claims that their comments about the gay community were indeed slanderous.
