John Eggerton, Walden: Unlicensed Is Important, But FCC Should Not Give Away Billions, Broadcasting & Cable, February 9, 2012

Quote

“Communications Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.), said he was for unlicensed spectrum too, but not for the FCC giving away spectrum.”

 Comment

Talk about Orwellian doublespeak: this is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black. Walden is structuring the auction so that broadcasters will receive a huge spectrum windfall. Then he invents a new definition of windfall so he can accuse his opponents of doing what he is doing. Chutzpah! But I don’t doubt that it will work.
