Kenneth Tomlinson, who stepped down as chairman of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting earlier this year, is now leaving the CPB board altogether. The resignation comes ahead of the results of an internal inquiry into Tomlinson's allegedly politically motivated moves at the CPB. Critics have accused Tomlinson of overstepping his authority and political meddling in public television and radio.
