Lawmakers Seek Probe Into Alleged Efforts to Politicize PBS

By Doug Halonen, TV Week

Reps. John Dingell, D-Mich., and David Obey, D-Wis., have asked the inspector general of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting to investigate allegations that Kenneth Tomlinson, CPB's Republican chairman, has been trying to politicize Public
Broadcasting Service programming.

"CPB's own research has shown that the American public believes public television and radio programming is objective and balanced," the two Democrats said in a letter to the CPB. "If CPB is moving in the direction of censorship of public affairs content based on partisanship and political views, this will severely erode the public trust that public broadcasting heretofore has enjoyed."
