I have many a time flipped past the 700 Club which airs daily on our NYC Channel 14: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_700_Club  I decided to watch a bit yesterday — Roberts is occasionally quoted for some of his more outrageous statements thereupon such as that we should assassinate Hugo Chavez, the President of Venezuela.  I could not stomach the whole show yesterday, but the format is that of a CNN type run through of news items presented by a person sitting next to Robertson who comments on same.  For instance, he cheered on the ‘new Europe’ President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy, for suggesting that we (not France presumably) may have to bomb Iran.  Another segment ran with an author on Christian martyrs who maintained that Christians worldwide are being subjected to horrendous persecutions (guess by whom).

I gather such religious TV outfits are making it big time with folks out there now that our media are increasingly controlled by fewer and fewer corporate interests.  Here is the Club’s own website in contrast to the Wiki one above:
