PBS’ NewsHour dumps right-wing talking head.

Responding to an onslaught of reader complaints about right-wing talk-radio host Melanie Morgan’s shrill appearance on the May 8 edition of PBS’ NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, NewsHour executive producer Linda Winslow said today that Morgan would not be asked back to the show. “We can’t do much to eliminate rude guests from your television screen once the segment has begun,” said Winslow. “What we can do is guarantee you will never see that person on our program again.”
