CPB ombudsmen give thumbs-up to NPR, PBS programming

Washington Post
What kind of slanted reporting have Corporation for Public Broadcasting ombudsmen Ken Bode and William Schulz uncovered since they began work three months ago? “None at all,” reports Paul Farhi. “Instead, Bode and Schulz have been positively glowing in their assessments of the journalism heard on NPR and seen on news shows distributed by PBS. So glowing, in fact, that Schulz and Bode’s reports could easily be excerpted in the shorthand style of a movie ad quoting favorable reviews.”
