Inside Radio: CPB's Ken Tomlinson violated code of ethics

Inside Radio / M Street Publications: "Ken Tomlinson violated the code of ethics at CPB, says the agency's own inspector general.

The IG says Tomlinson used 'political tests' when he hired former Republican National Committee co-chair Patricia Harrison as president and CEO - and failed to disclose to his board that he was paying for outside monitoring of public radio's Diane Rehm and other shows funded by the Corporation. Tomlinson resigned from the board a month ago - though he's still chairman of the Broadcasting Board of Governors, which oversees government broadcasting efforts like VOA.

On NOW, any appearance by moderately offensive liberals such as James Carville were to be balanced with two appearances by polite conservatives like Tucker Carlson. Howard Dean warranted three Tom Delay appearances and John Kerry was equal in weight to two Dick Cheneys, an Ann Coulter, and former Christian Coalition president Ralph Reed. Its a simple matter of balance and fairness.
