Bush Planned the End of PBS. Started Rot from within after installing Kenneth Thomlinson.

I found this Rachel Maddow coverage of the near demise of public television fascinating. Wayne Slater, author of "Bush's Brain," tells the most incredible TRUE story of the Bush administrations attempt to dismantle PBS by putting Kenneth Thomlinson in charge of overseeing and politicizing the excruciatingly unbiased network.

But since that didn't happen, the now former president wants everyone to see the George W. Bush think tank public TV show starting in February "Ideas in Action," a sneaky little way to revise history and gain Reagan like supporters. I'm sure the Daily Show and Stephen Colbert will be tuning in.
