Holcomb took while serving with the EEOC which "revealed his insensitivity to the public interest" (opposing in 1971 the EEOC's position that sex-segregated want-ads were a violation of Title VII and testifying against proposed legislation that would give the EEOC enforcement powers in job discrimination cases), BROADCASTING magazine (April 8) said that continued on page 8
