In the past few weeks, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, the San Francisco Chronicle and various left-wing websites have been alerting their readers to the supposed massive threat so-called public broadcasting is facing in the person of Ken Tomlinson, Chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The problem for the liberals, as columnists Ann Coulter and Brent Bozell described in Human Events and Human Events Online last week is that Tomlinson has had the audacity to think that perhaps there should be some balance in public broadcasting.
Of course, you can see why public television stations around the country would be so upset. Tomlinson is obviously a threat to a free press by hoping for some balance. Since when, many Americans wonder, has taxpayer-financed public radio and television been interested in balance? If you think there should be some balance, or, if you think, there should be no taxpayer financed radio and television, let the folks at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting have your views.
