Tomlinson Steps Down From Public Broadcasting Seat Under Criticism of Bias

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Kenneth Tomlinson, the former board chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting accused by critics of trying to politicize public television and radio, has resigned from the board, it said on Thursday.

Tomlinson, a Republican, quit shortly before CPB Inspector General Kenneth Konz was to publish a report after investigating his activities, including paying outside researchers to check public programming for liberal bias.

The CPB said both the board and Tomlinson believed it was in the best interest of the CPB that he step down.

Because Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Neal Bortz, Ann Coulter, Mark Lavin, and company are not enough? They need more influence over the air waves and other media outlets?

Even if NPR becomes a state funded bastion for liberal media, it is the only one left, as all others have been virtually run out of the business. You can’t have them all guys, you just cant.
