Archive/File: ihr salaman.01 Last-modified: 1993/05/01 "By the late 1980s, FCBN [Family Christian Broadcasting Network] began syndicating some of its programs on other Christian networks. The most popular of these shows was 'Accent on Health' with Maureen Salaman, also a frequent guest host on 'California Tonight.' Salaman's presence on FCBN (her show is also syndicated on TBN) is an example of how religious broadcasting can be used to promote the agenda of political extremists. Aside from her expertise on health food, Salaman is known nationally as a veteren activist in Willis Carto's Liberty Lobby. Carto has been described by civil libertarians as the most notorious anti-Semite and racial supremacist in the United States.<101> Carto's Institute for Historical Review publishes literature 'proving' that the Nazi holocaust did not occur. In 1984, Salaman campaigned as the Vice-Presidential candidate on the slate of Carto's fractious electoral front, the Populist Party.<102> In early 1986, the Populist Party fell apart during an internal power struggle. Salaman came out on the side of Carto against the slightly less extreme American Independent Party faction.<103> Backstage at a live 'TV-42' filming of a Christian trade show in 1986, Salaman told the author, 'I'm urging people to send their money directly to the 'Spotlight' in Washington, D.C.' The 'Spotlight' is the Liberty Lobby's weekly tabloid which, interspersed with tributes to Hitler aide Rudolf Hess and French fascist Jean Marie LePen, advertises Nazi paraphernalia and teaching materials from "Identity" preachers (described in chapter 4). Ronn Haus' promotion of Maureen Salaman on national television is an implicit endorsement of here extremist policies and an open invitation for born-again viewers to ally themselves with her cohorts."
