Dems: Conservative Speech is Illegal

From The Drudge Report as heard on the Rush Limbaugh show:
Two congressional Democrats called Wednesday for an investigation into recent activities by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, suggesting that efforts by the Republican chairman of the private nonprofit to add more conservative programs onto PBS may violate federal law.
That's right, illegal. I'm sure there are various and sundry nuances that these two congressvermin will expound at great length, but the bottom line is that they're happy with PBS as a federally funded Democrat party house organ and don't want any changes made to PBS' gross liberal bias.

I'm with Slate's Jack Shafer on the issue of federal funds for PBS. Cut them off and let them compete.
