The 700 Club
The 700 Club is a Religious-Right news and talk show hosted by religious leader Pat Robertson, airing on cable's ABC Family and in syndication throughout the United States and Canada. It is the flagship presentation of the Christian Broadcasting Network.
The show presents news stories from a Religious-Right perspective, often relating stories to passages from the Bible which are generally followed by commentary on them from the hosts. It also features celebrity and other interviews about their feelings on Christianity. The news segments frequently emphasize eschatology and have been attacked as explicitly political. The style of news reporting on the show has also been criticized as unfairly biased, often framing stories in a manner said to reflect the views of Pat Roberson rather than simply presenting the facts.
The number 700 comes from the Robertson's first televised telethon for his ministry. In it, he set a goal of 700 members paying $10 each a month, a number which would meet the industry's operating budget at the time. Robertson came to refer to these members as the '700 Club' and the name stuck.
