scraped Tomlinson data article links from MMfA

For anyone doing Tomlinson researrch:

a recent (June 22, 2002) data scrape from Media Matters for America. In case you are unaware of it, MMfA was started by David Brock. If you are wiling to doing the tedious digging, sometimes the board thread on each artcile offers insight (click comment link).

MMfA also has a recent article RSS syndication file. If you use RSS, this one moves fast through the article listings, and should be updated at least daily.

How about this question (sic) at the White House Briefing today - makes you wonder who was asking it eh? --Bob Burton 04:25, 23 Jun 2005 (EDT)

  • Scott McClellan, "Press Briefing", The White House Office of the Press Secretary, June 22, 2005.

Q Scott, the President has been asked to remove Ken Tomlinson as head of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting by 16 Democrat Senators, including Senator Durbin. And my first question, of two -- doesn't the President feel that this is actually a commendation of Mr. Tomlinson, coming as it does from Durbin and the rest of these Senators who should instead be asking Durbin to resign as Minority Whip?

MR. McCLELLAN: Wow, that's tying a lot of things together, Les. Let me just say that we continue to support him. We reappointed him. He was originally appointed by the Clinton administration and we continue to support him in his work.
