Suddenly Political Bias at PBS is an Issue?
Because it's not the right kind
of political bias:Sixteen Democratic senators called on President Bush to remove Kenneth Y. Tomlinson as head of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting because of their concerns that he is injecting partisan politics into public radio and television.
And get this "error" discovered by the Times in their piece:Mr. Mann, who was paid $14,170 for his work by the taxpayer-financed corporation, rated the guests on the show by such labels as "anti-Bush" or "anti-DeLay," a reference to Representative Tom DeLay of Texas, the House majority leader. He classified Senator Chuck Hagel of Nebraska as a "liberal," even though Mr. Hagel is well-known as a mainstream conservative Republican.
I didn't know there were "mainstream" conservative Republicans; presumably the term means conservative Republicans who knock Bush.
