FCC exposed

Found this quote from the folks at the First Amendment Center:

''Scratch just about every other FCC commissioner, and you’ll find a TV critic dying to get out.''
- Robert Corn-Revere, First Amendment lawyer, author, 2003

All too true, but I think Mr. Corn-Revere is being too kind in terms of the numbers. It's more like EVERY commissioner, not every other one. A regular critic can't do what the FCC can do, which is to use government to silence speech. That's WHY they're in the government in the first place. It's all about power, folks.
