PBS Seeking Balance With New President

Concerns are rampant among the left leaning as Patricia Harrison was named president and chief executive. Harrison is the assistant secretary of state for education and cultural affairs. Seems to Ol' BC like this position may provide a pretty good foundation for running Public Broadcasting. But here is the liberals concern -

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, already embroiled in controversy over
allegations of a liberal-leaning bias in PBS programming, chose a former
Republican Party co-chairman Thursday as its president and chief executive.

This according to an AP article .

So, it appears that PBS may be trying to give the impression that they will try to balance programming OR they are going to actually try to balance programming. Given Harrison's position with the state department, it appears that her background is appropriate for such a network. They profess to have educational programming.

If PBS actually achieves balanced programming, we'll all be able to hear the squeals.

Just a thought.
