Kenneth Tomlinson (a fact the left tries to hide)

I was watching FOX News last night (leftists just tuned out) and learned something I hadn't known before. "Embattled" CPB (PBS's purse) chairman Kenneth Tomlinson, was appointed to the board by none other than the Big Dog himself, Bill Clinton! So the left's new whipping boy was appointed by the do-no-wrong hero of the neosocialists. Fantastic.

I read the story that Drudge links to in the New York Times and they do a nice job of sneaking in this important nugget of info.

"Mr. Tomlinson was first nominated to the board by the past administration and was renominated in 2003," said Erin Healy, a White House spokeswoman.

As Kornheiser might say, that's it, that's the list. That is the extent to which they venerable NY Times goes to reveal the truth. Not even a mention of Clinton, just quoting a White House spokesperson six or seven paragraphs into the story saying he was nominated by "the previous administration."
