FCC snowed out


The weather system that slammed into the Washington DC area and buried it in more than a foot of snow managed to bring much of the US federal government to a standstill. The FCC was no exception. Employees were given the day off on what will already be a short week.

RBR-TVBR observation: It just goes to show that the FCC is not as tough as the broadcasters it regulates. No doubt most FCC staffers learned about their day to sleep in (and dig out) from broadcasters who WERE able to make it in to their job.
