THERE IS NO CONSERVATIVE CULTURE...:

PBS board nomination raises eyebrows (Los Angeles Times, 7/14/06)

Less than a year after the chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting was forced to resign amid charges that he injected partisanship into the agency, President Bush has nominated a television sitcom producer who has described himself as "thoroughly conservative in ways that strike horror into the hearts of my Hollywood colleagues" to the nonprofit's board.

The nomination of Warren Bell, executive producer of ABC's "According to Jim" and a contributor to the online edition of the conservative National Review magazine, has raised fears he could revive the sharp political debate that engulfed the system last year.


Did they think the President would appoint Meathead?

The only acceptable sitcom writers with open POVs to serve on the CPB board in the eyes of the media are folks like Meathead's dialogue writer, Norman Lear.
