The New American recently interviewed Dr. Ted Baehr at the headquarters of Movieguide and the Christian Film & Television Commission in Camarillo, California.

Dr. Baehr is founder and publisher of Movieguide and chairman of the Christian Film & Television Commission (CFTVC), as well as a noted author, critic, educator, lecturer, and media pundit. He has been a featured guest on Oprah, Hannity and Colmes, CNN, ABC, Fox News, MSNBC, Entertainment Tonight, and many other programs and platforms.

Dr. Baehr graduated summa cum laude in Comparative Literature from Dartmouth College, attended Cambridge University, the University of Bordeaux & Toulouse, and the University of Munich, graduated with a Juris Doctor from New York University School of Law, finished his theological studies at the Institute of Theology at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, and received a Doctor of Humanities from Belhaven College. He is past president of the Episcopal Radio & Television Foundation and former director of the Television Center at the City University of New York.

“Both Movieguide and CFTVC,” says Dr. Baehr, “are dedicated to redeeming the values of the entertainment industry, according to biblical principles, by influencing industry executives and artists and by informing and educating the public about the influence of the entertainment media and about how to train their families to become media-wise, so they can choose the good and reject the bad.”

Movieguide is more than just a magazine,” the organization’s website points out, “it’s also a two-minute TV show, a two-minute and five-minute radio show, and an Internet resource available around the world and broadcast, cablecast and satellite-cast in more than 200 countries and territories.”
