"Public" Broadcasting?

letter to the LA Times

RE The GOP inside PBS, June 26, Can someone please explain how an organization that is supposed to be non-partisan can have a Republican chairman and president? Is there anything "public" in the Corporation for Public Broadcasting aside from our money? I propose having CPB recipients, i.e. station managers, elect or approve the Chair and President who will be doling out the public’s money. Station managers, in turn, can be elected or confirmed by the station members. This public form of representation would have far less conflict of interest than allowing partisan appointments to a supposedly apolitical organization.
