It looks like Tomlinson got out of the CPB just in time. This from today’s
WASHINGTON — The former chairman of the Corporation for Public
Broadcasting repeatedly violated the organization’s contracting rules and
code of ethics in his efforts to promote conservatives in the system,
according to an internal investigation released today.
The 42-page report ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â the culmination of a six-month investigation by
Kenneth A. Konz, the corporation’s inspector general ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Â described former
Chairman Kenneth Y. Tomlinson as a rogue politico who overstepped the
boundaries of his position to right what he viewed as a liberal tilt in
Tomlinson, who resigned his board position this month in advance of the
report, denied any wrongdoing in a statement included in the report, calling
the charges “malicious and irresponsible.”
The investigation was requested in the spring by Reps. David Obey (D-Wis.)
and John Dingell (D-Mich.).
That is good news for the CPB and PBS as now the he is out maybe they can
return the great programming we once enjoyed.
