Not for the reasons these people say...
But because he's pretty much discredited himself in his handling of the PBS and NPR bias issue, in his role as Chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. I saw him on the PBS Newshour with Jim Lehrer last night,testifying at the ridiculous Senate hearing described in this New York Times story. It was comical to hear him and the Republican CPB president Patricia Harrison -- who helped turn the whole world against the USA while she was in charge of public diplomacy at the State Department -- sing the praises of federally funded broadcast networks that are trying to bring Tomlinson, his party and his President down.
Plus, he's obviously small-minded. If Tomlinson had given Fred Mann $14 million to study public broadcasting bias, it might have been impressive. But $14,000? And they say he's a Texan?
