CPB Chairman Kenneth Tomlinson replied to calls for an investigation of CPB. In a statement, Tomlinson said: "I welcome the call by Congressmen Dingell and Obey for the inspector general to examine issues related to my efforts to encourage public broadcasters to take more seriously the need that our current affairs line-up reflect objectivity and balance."
He continued by stating: "I look forward to working with the inspector general and with the Congress to clear up with finality distortions in press reports and elsewhere about our work to bring more diversity to public broadcasting. There would be no debate on this issue if more programs on public television reflected the high journalistic standards of the NewsHour with Jim Lehrer."
