FCC off the hook


For now, anyway. The Senate Commerce Committee has postponed its hearing on remaking the Commission, which had been scheduled for Wednesday 4/22/09. A new time and date have not yet been announced, and the Committee had never gotten around to providing an inkling on who it had lined up to testify.

RBR/TVBR observation: We thought it odd that this hearing was pegged for the day after several nominations were to be considered, but not that of proposed FCC Chair Julius Genachowski. Hey, at least give him a chance to hang a picture in his new office before reforming his new agency out from under him.
