Re: FCC rejects EchoStar/DirecTV merger 4-0

I find Michael Powell's comment in this article
interesting.  Here he states that this potential
merger goes against competition and would create a
regulated monopoly instead.  And therefore, the merger
plan was refused.  But yet, over on the radio side of
things, he seems to carry a totally different attitude
and approach, supporting mega-corporate takeovers and
mergers, and encouraging similar deals such as this to
occur.  Case in point, the upcoming hearings on the
removal of ownership caps on radio stations; and the
way his comission is selectively choosing only people
that share his views to speak at those hearings.
