The mailing reports that Los Angeles public television station KCET will no longer broadcast "South Africa Now," a weekly magazine show because it asserts the series is biased in favor of the African National Congress, the party of Nelson Mandela. The mailing asks members of Artists for a Free South Africa to make phone calls and send letters and faxes of protest. The mailing includes a newspaper article "KCET Claims Bias, Won’t Air Any New 'Africa Now' Shows" by Sharon Bernstein. The mailing includes SUGGESTED TEXT FOR KCET LETTER; and press release Artists For A Free South Africa Respond to KCET's Cancellation of South Africa Now; and a copy of a fax to Mr. Stephen Kulczycki, Senior Vice President and Station Manager, KCET from Doe Mayer, Assistant Professor, School of Cinema-Television.
