Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Personal from Herbert W Armstrong - Two INCIDENTS - an article I read in a magazine, and a news item seen on the TV news, provoked this little personal talk with our readers. First, was the story of Charles Van Doren and the television scandal about the rigging of the quiz show "Twenty-One." Although Charles Van Doren's mind was well filled with factual knowledge about this world - its history, geography, literature, art, governments, and events - he was, to a considerable extent, fed the answers in advance to the questions he was going to be asked. Everything was rehearsed. He was thoroughly drilled, before appearing on the program, in how to hesitate, close his eyes as if intense mental concentration, bite his lip, mop his brow, then snap a finger as if the answer had suddenly come to him. He was instructed to come up with a wrong answer once in a while, on an easy question the answer to which most of the listening audience would know - just for the effect of flattering the unsuspecting viewers.
