Like any sane person, I was sickened over Powell Jr’s pathetic pampering of the major media companies he was supposed to regulate and how his successor wants to follow down the same path. Luckily, there are at least two sane voices on the FCC board now, including Michael Copps (though he’s one to support crackdowns on “obscenity” too) and Juan Gonzalez. See what they had to say when they came to Gotham.
