PBS appoints Republican as president

Public Broadcasting Names New President

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the group that funnels your tax dollars into PBS and NPR, has appointed a Republican as its new president.

PBS and NPR have always been the most reliably liberal (ridiculously liberal is more like it) broadcast outlets on the airwaves. Now, the liberals are worried about a Republican in charge will make it a BIASED organization!

Sens. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., Hillary Rodham Clinton' , D-N.Y., and others expressed dismay at the expected appointment of Harrison. "We find it astonishing that Ms. Harrison, given her former prominence as a partisan political figure, would even be considered as a candidate for a job that demands that the occupant be non-political," the senators said in their letter.

I've never heard them express their concern about the blatant liberalism that our tax dollars support on both NPR and PBS. If any broadcaster should be fair and balanced, it should be the ones funded by John Q. Taxpayer.
