Michael Powell to resign?
Sat Jan 22 00:05:05 EST 2005
You have to admit that the airwaves have been a mess for a year
...personally, I think the networks and the franchises set Powell up for a
fall....they pushed the conservative envelope until the "public" began to
notice...."bleeps", "selective censorship", and talk show ridicule
(Letterman, Leno, Stern et all)...pushed the public and the administration
to look for a lower profile for an agency that hasn't been in the news until
We know they exist....they don't...
