This from the Washington Post:
As congressional Democrats prepare to give the Federal Communications Commission its toughest scrutiny in years, a rivalry between the powerful agency's two most prominent Republicans is raising questions about its readiness to handle barbed questions and stiff challenges.
The Republican-controlled FCC -- which makes far-reaching decisions on telephone, television, radio, Internet and other services that people use daily -- has sparred infrequently with Republican-controlled congresses. But the Democratic-run 110th Congress is about to heat up the grill. . . ,
Senators vow to press the chairman and four commissioners on matters such as media-ownership diversity, Internet access, broadcast decency standards and delays in resolving various issues. [emphasis added.]
"They've effectively emasculated any public-interest standards that existed" for radio and TV stations, said Sen. Byron L. Dorgan (D-N.D.). . . ,
The internet may be saved with Congress riding to the rescue. Hope so anyway.
And, isn't it amazing--how the Right Leaning media have blared from from the rooftops about the Liberal Media Bias -- when the FCC has been controlled by Republicans for quite some time, now?
