CPB Chairman Tomlinson Loves the O'Reilly Factor

So he says. Kenneth Y. Tomlinson is the head of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and he finds the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) too liberal. Though he says that he never discussed PBS with Bush administration officials, Media Matters for America says he did. And though

a "CPB representative" reportedly told The Washington Post in advance of a May 13 article that "Tomlinson was not giving media interviews,"

he does, at least to the wingnuts in the media: Bill O'Reilly and Tucker Carlson. Expect Big Bird to find religion fairly soon.
