Although grants for television and radio are a small percentage of the Foundation's total grant portfolio, in terms of what people see and hear that they associate with the Foundation and the issues it cares about, they are an important component.

Partial support was found for two causal mechanisms underlying television's inhibitory effect on reading comprehension: (a) a television-induced reduction in leisure-time book reading and (b) a television-induced depreciation of reading.

 Special Report -- 4/6/1998 -- Faith in a Box--Entertainment Television on Religion-1997
Last year, the news media noted the increase in television shows that regularly had at least something to do with religion.
Generally, these results resemble those of 1996, when we also found a 2-1 positive/negative breakdown overall; a clear majority of positive depictions of faith; a clear plurality of positive portrayals of religious institutions and doctrines; overwhelming anti-laity sentiment; and a narrow victory for positive treatments of the clergy.
On the other, historic hand, television has slighted faith to such an extent that more programs with religious characters who openly and frequently discuss religion still are needed in order to undo many years of neglect and hostility.
