  • Yet more on new FCC head Michael Powell:
    Wired News has an article examining Powell’s desire to limit the FCC’s power. The article quotes Andrew Schwartzman, president of Media Access Project, who raises concerns with Powell’s approach to mergers, in addition to his opposition to low-power FM. Schwartzman says that Powell “has a very crimped view of the FCC’s public interest authority.” However, the article also notes that some in the industry believe that Powell may alter his stance on LPFM, since his greatest supporter is Sen. McCain, who last year emerged as the most prominent republican–if not only republican–to support LPFM.
