    I wonder what the Inspector Generals report says?

    I'll be interested in seeing the report when it comes out. PBS carries an assumption of neutrality, but it is still a media outlet. You can't just assume a media outlet isn't liberal because it is public and non-profit - it's still a media outlet. There is an inherrent liberal bend to its existence.

    PBS is better than average - that's for sure. But it's still a media outlet and it is still liberal.

    An opinion is a matter of perspective.

    PBS and NPR haven't changed. It just seems that way because the mainstream has become so much more conservative.
