Scope and content

Audio 128a consists of the following recording:
Title: Dr. Neil Snider – “Developments at Trinity Western University” / Rob Gregory – “Truth in Media”
President Snider discusses the importance of media and communications in developments and changes at Trinity Western University. He conveys his excitement over the development of the Communications Department, and reviews the history of the Communications program. He speaks about additional programs he would like to develop. At [9:43] a different recording of a Texas weatherman cuts in. At [10:15] a third recording begins; Rob Gregory, of Family News in Focus [a radio program connected to Focus on the Family], speaks on the importance of “truth” in media. He discusses the difficulties Christians face in communicating with hostile cultures. He discusses subjectivity and objectivity at length, and provides examples of hypocrisy within the media. He is cut off in the middle of a sentence.
Audio 128b consists of the following recording:
Title: Rob Gregory – “Truth in Media”
This is a continuation of Gregory’s talk on Aud. 128a. He continues to discuss media treatment of such issues as abstinence, homosexuality, abortion, and spirituality. He encourages those listening to thoroughly examine both sides of an issue before reporting on it. He illustrates this with many personal examples.
