Mark Kilmer, over at RedState, has been doing diligent coverage of the PBS story. The gist is that liberals are angry that conservatives are trying to make PBS left of a lefty talk fest.
The Washington Post is angry. It seems they see the Republican majority as determined to reshape PBS, that bastion of independent thought, into a party organ. I sympathize, to that extent; after all, the market is rejecting their little message.
