More on Michael Powell Tom

  • More on Michael Powell
    Tom has another look at FCC Chair Michael Powell, taking a closer look at his political connections, especially those he has with Sen. McCain and Sen. Billy Tauzin and the broadcast industry. Despite his reformist stance, McCain is still one of the biggest recipients of broadcast industry campaign dollars, and Powell certainly reflects this pro-industry side well. The article sees the Republicans licking their lips at the prospect of furthering the career of this conservative, pro-business African-American who doesn’t show any of the right-wing wackiness of an Alan Keyes, and who also isn’t nearly as moderate as his famous father.

    I sincerely hope that increasing public scrutiny of his unabashed anti-consumer stance at the FCC will help to dull the sheen in short order.
