'Drive-by' hiring at PBS

News & Politics

"You'd think that the president of CPB should be someone with experience in public broadcasting, someone who is nonpartisan," writes Murshed Zaheed. "She is neither. This woman actually led the Republican National Committee...Her career experience is not grounded in news, but in spinning the news, first as an entrepreneur with her own public relations and lobbying shop, and then in White House jobs where she defended the State Department's use of video news reports...This was nothing but a drive-by hiring that should deeply offend anyone who cares about the editorial integrity of public broadcasting."
