This is a hoot. Both shows are soooooo mainstream. Good, but very mainstream. Via Democracy Now!‘s headline stories:

… The New York Times is reporting that the Republican chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting Kenneth Tomlinson hired a consultant to monitor the political leanings of guests on a total of three shows on public tv and radio. In addition to the PBS show “Now with Bill Moyers,” Tomlinson ordered the monitoring of shows hosted by Diane Rehm and Tavis Smiley. The CPB’s inspector general is now examining Tomlinson’s hiring of the consultant Fred Mann. Mann was previously employed by a conservative media training organization whose alumni include Ann Coulter.

And, in case you missed it, you can watch, listen to, or read DN!’s full-hour interview of Bill Moyers last week.
