Paula Zahn Tries Again

After doing a segment on how atheists are discriminated, and then following that with a panel discussion that unwittingly showed this discrimination first hand, Paula Zahn is trying again.

This time she’s including an atheist in the discussion.

What a novel idea.

Richard Dawkins will be a guest on Paula Zahn Now Friday night, 8:00 p.m. EST.

This time, they’re showing the first segment but not the panel discussion.

Isn’t this a discussion about atheism in America, though? Why are they asking a British guy to speak about this topic?

As Dawkins himself posted on Pharyngula:

Yes, I independently had the same thought yesterday, about the need for American voices rather than my English one. I suggested some names, including Michael Newdow who was actually slandered by one of the morons on the previous program. Unfortunately, however, CNN were adamant that they wanted a one-on-one between me and Paula Zahn. So I’ll just have to do the best I can, with apologies to those who could surely have done a better job. I think it is possible that CNN don’t want to concentrate on American attitudes to atheists this time, so much as on atheism more generaly (I was told that Paula Zahn is reading The God Delusion).

It’ll be some good viewing. And you can bet it’ll be up on YouTube even faster than last time. The only person who won’t be able to find it will be Debbie Schlussel.
