Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead

Posted by Lazlo Hollyfeld

In a move cheered by media reform groups & exposed nipples throughout the land, FCC Chairman Michael Powell announced today he is stepping down.

I'm sure this will be great news for advocates of low power & community radio, opponents of consolidation, fans of the 1st Amendment, and....wait a minute. Bush gets to appoint his replacement, right? Then scrap everything I just said.

I'm sure we'll find his replacement worthy of vilification as well.

Update: Encourage President Bush to appoint an FCC chief that will serve in the public interest.
