Mission Statement

Our purpose is to impact the quality of television. To this end we produce and distribute on Public Television the McCuistion Program, an intellectually stimulating, objective exchange of ideas that challenges prevailing attitudes about things that matter.


The Foundation for Responsible Television funds and distributes McCuistion, an issues-oriented program that illuminates business, social, economic and public policy concerns and challenges. Our viewers are individuals from all socio-economic walks of life who get involved in making a difference.

The McCuistion Program focuses on education through television on important issues. We believe the power of television can significantly impact individual lives. Our purpose is to inform and educate viewers with objective, up to date information so we may exercise individual responsibility in our involvement and responses to these areas of concern.

The McCuistion Program is funded by corporate grants, foundations and individuals through the Foundation for Responsible Television (a 501(c)(3) educational foundation).

We appreciate your continued involvement and interest. If you would like to sponsor a future program or make a contribution please navigate to the following sections:
