The Conservatisation of Public Broadcasting

This whole SCLM (so-called liberal media) joke continues with that bastion of liberalness, public broadcasting.

How bizarre that Tucker Carlson now has his own show on PBS where, according to Media Matters, he can spread the same misrepresentations he is given to on other media outlets.

And then there's Gwen Ifill parroting GOP talking points, as David Sirota points out on his excellent website.

And let's not forget about Juan Williams, whom David Neiwert refers to as a Bush apologista.

I've come to expect the mainstream media to swallow the GOP kool-aid without question, but to see it happening at PBS and NPR is harder to take.
