Shocking Development at Corporation for Public Broadcasting
This is possibly the closest that CPB has ever come to having their liberal bias balanced with other points of view. Such irresponsible actions would make it very difficult for pseudo intellectual progressive liberal demoracists to air their propaganda without restraint. It was a very close call for progressive minded audiences everywhere.
There can now be no doubt that CPB can and will do whatever it wants other than being accountable to all Americans. CPB is accountable to pseudo intellectual progressive liberal demoracists who know what is best for all Americans. That should be conservative enough, right?
Exec's political bias cited in PBS probe
WASHINGTON (Hollywood Reporter) - In his zeal to force conservative views onto the public airwaves, the former head of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting interfered with PBS programming decisions and may have required the corporation's new president to pass "political tests," an internal investigation revealed.
Kenneth Tomlinson, a Republican, also sought to withhold funding from PBS unless the taxpayer-supported network "balanced their programming" with more conservative voices, according to the report released Tuesday by CPB inspector general Kenneth Konz.
Tomlinson was chairman of the corporation until September and resigned as a board member this month after Konz privately shared his findings with the board. CPB said it was taking action to prevent a recurrence, setting up a corporate governance committee and an executive compensation committee.
"These are bold and decisive actions to respond to important issues," CPB chairman Cheryl Halpern said. "The board is unified in its views and in its determination to take meaningful steps to maintain and strengthen public confidence in public broadcasting."
The major government underwriter for programming aired on PBS and public radio, the CPB was established in 1967 to shield public broadcasting from political influence.
