Newsbytes reports that Sen. Hollings

  • Newsbytes reports that Sen. Hollings is threatening to cut funding to the Federal Trade Commission in response to that agency’s deal with the Dept. of Justice that puts the DoJ in charge of media merger oversight. He’s pissed because the deal was originally forged in secret, outside of Congress’ watchful eye, and because the DoJ is generally expected to be much more lenient than the FTC.
