Report: Tomlinson Broke Federal Law

Earlier this month, Kenneth Y. Tomlinson resigned from the board Corporation for Public Broadcasting when a CPB investigation into his activities was made available, privately, to other members of the CPB board.

The report has now become public and it details numerous actions by the former CPB Chairman which the investigators claim violate federal law and, just as importantly, the mission of the CPB to be a kind of firewall between politics and public broadcasting.

"Our review found an organizational environment that allowed the former chairman and other C.P.B. executives to operate without appropriate checks and balances"
Mr. Tomlinson strongly disagrees with the findings.
