CBS SVP of Comm. Jeff Ballabon has only been on the job one day and is already drawing attention for his Republican ties. Ira Forman, Executive Director of the National Jewish Democratic Council writes in a Huffington Post column, “This guy is very far out there with his partisan rhetoric…It’s astonishing that CBS News would name Ballabon to its senior management.”

However, Ballabon insists that he will come to CBS as a non-partisan and won’t have any influnce over content. He tells TVNewser: “I am very happy to be here at CBS News. I hope to make a very positive contribution for a long time to come. I will be a nonpartisan member of this team dedicated to communicating all the good news happening at CBS.”
