Genachowski invited to Hill hot seat


The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation changed the time of its 5/12/09 nominations hearing from 10AM to 11AM and yes, the hearing is to consider Democrat Julius Genachowski for the job of Chairman of the FCC. It appears he will be a solo act – no other names are mentioned.

RBR/TVBR observation: We suspect the other pending nominee, Mignon Clyburn (D), will be on hold until the Republicans come up with a candidate for the FCC’s fifth and final 8th Floor office. As for Genachowski, he should sail through this committee. The only question is whether or not the Republican members will bother to keep it from being unanimous or not.
