Well, here’s the latest news:
Kenneth Y. Tomlinson’s problem wasn’t just that he wanted public television to hew to his conservative ideology. He was also apparently blinded by those same politics to the laws, policies and practices that are supposed to guide public service.
E-mail evidence shows that he was regularly taking direction from the White House, including in the appointment of Patricia Harrison, a bigwig in Republican circles, as the CPB’s new president, a job traditionally reserved for non-politicians with actual TV experience.
Hopefully this will be the last we’ll hear from Tomlinson concerning the CPB,… but you know what they say about bad pennys.
