In the United States, the president of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) created a black list of personalities that will not be invited to radio and television programs again. The list is comprised of editorialists and politicians who oppose the war of Iraq, including some Republican leaders such as Senator Chuck Hagel. The Corporation for Public Broadcasting is a para-administrative body in charge of distributing federal funding to local television and radio stations. Its new president, Kenneth Y. Tomlinson, headed The Voice of the Americas during Reagan’s administration and, later, the Reader’s Digest.
