Public Broadcasting Chief Is Named, Raising Concerns
The house may not have cut funding to PBS and NPR, but the ruling party has managed to insert their control in other ways.
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting on Thursday appointed Patricia S. Harrison, a former co-chairwoman of the Republican National Committee, to be its next president and chief executive.

In acting, the corporation board brushed aside concerns from many public television and radio stations and Democratic lawmakers that choosing Ms. Harrison threatened to inject partisanship into an organization that is supposed to shield public broadcasting from political pressures.
Now to be fair, if they had named a Democrat to this post, the backlash would have been even greater, but this is clearly sending a message to PBS to clean up its supposedly liberally biased ways.

This should be interesting......

I'll bet this signals the end of this guy
