CPB names ombudspeople 

This just in: The CORPORATION FOR PUBLIC BROADCASTING has named former NBC newsman KEN BODE and ex-READER'S DIGEST editor WILLIAM SCHULZ as ombudsmen to review the work of NPR, PBS, and other public radio and TV outlets. The move may be related to recent criticism of public broadcasting for programming the critics say exhibits liberal bias; NPR already has its own ombudsman, JEFFREY DWORKIN, and PBS is hiring one.
