Double Secret Probation

Kenneth Tomlinson, the President of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, commissioned Fred Mann, a former GOP consultant and a retired employee of the National Journalism Center, to report on bias on PBS. Yesterday Sen. Byron L. Dorgan of North Dakota released that report and today the LA Times said:

Radio host and former San Diego Mayor Roger Hedgecock was listed as “anti-Bush” for saying the military was underpaid.

According to Mr Mann's logic if someone said members of the military were overpaid they would be Pro-Bush. Hmmm. Now that I think about it this makes sense given that the Bush administration tried to cut the pay of service members, so I guess it is a Pro-Bush position.

The Times said that Tomlinson...

[...] commissioned the report without informing the rest of the CPB board in order to learn more about the programming without alarming people in the system.

You know, kinda like Double Secret Probation.
