    "Don Sylvester, TV pioneer dies"

    Article states that "He served as a lay minister at churches in Republic, Ozark and High Prairie and was known for his philosophical debates about religion with members of the Jehovah's Witness faith."

    "debates about religion with members of the Jehovah's Witness faith."

    What does that mean, when compared to the heading "JW debater" - was he a person debating against JW, or with? Was he a Witness, or was he an opponent?

    "lay minister at churches" pretty well precludes him being "pro", I'd guess.

    I remember when I was little that the WTS was willing to debate with people on TV

    I guess they always got panned as they stopped doing it? No doubt they came up with some scriptural reason for not using the most effective mass media technology to get their wonderful message out in the same way that the internet is now suspect.

    If they can't control it ... they don't want to know.
