Looking For Biased with Biased.....

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) has named former Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs and former co-chair of the Republican National Committee Patricia S. Harrison as its new president and CEO...Now this is just a nice additive for Tomilson and his crusade to "righten up" PBS and NPR...I mean I hear allot of this rhetoric of not playing partisan politics with one of the most unbiased public outlets left to people without Internet access...but the facts do not lie...Here we have : Kenneth Y. Tomlinson, the Republican chairman of the CPB, who hired Mr. Fred Mann in the sum of $14k of American tax dollars to monitor bias on PBS' NOW with Bill Moyers. The labels used by Mr. Mann were verbiages such as "anti-Bush" and "anti-Delay"...Sounds a little partisan to me. Well it gets worse..it is now coming to light that Mr. Fred Mann not only made these biased labels but also misrepresented these #'s by for example labeling Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel as "liberal" when he is in fact a self declared conservative. And just in case it couldn't get anymore obvious, Mr. Fred Mann worked 20 years for a journalism center founded by and for the American Conservative Union....

bleh we all aren't dumb, the days of sleight-of-hand 9/11 are gone...John Q. Public isn't so blind to the radicalism of the neocons
