The legislation required CPB to operate with a "strict adherence to objectivity and balance in all programs or series of programs of a controversial nature".

1971 - In the year of James Nemeth's passing, in March, Intel shipped the first microprocessor to Busicom, a Japanese manufacturer of calculators.
