Juliana Greenwald, Walden Bullish on Spectrum Legislation’s Prospects, National Journal, January 25, 2012

Quote

“Walden said the language included in his bill would ensure the FCC can’t pick winners and losers.”

 Comment

This is an absurd statement, given that Walden wants to rig the auction process, including FCC incentives, so that the public transfers tens of billions of dollars to one of the most politically powerful lobbies–the local TV broadcasters–without public compensation. If that’s not picking winners (well-connected industry interests) and losers (the public), I don’t know what is.
