This essentially the gravamen of an op-ed Scott Allen Miller of
WRKO wrote in the Boston Globe last year. Perhaps some of the
entities at risk were either waiting for a new administration
in DC, or a new FCC Commissioner. Well, one of them
has happened, but the fact that the same people are in
charge of the White House means that Powell's successor may
not be to their liking. They'll just have to take their
chances with the courts anyway.
