RCR Wireless News
Reports June Hearing

FCC Management/"Broken Process"

This afternoon RCR reported that "House Commerce Committee investigators have recommended to Chairman John Dingell (D-Mich.) that hearings on FCC management practices be held in June, citing results to date from a probe of the issue that began late last year."

A staff memo was quoted as saying,
"We have conducted more than 30 interviews with current and former [FCC] employees as well as industry representatives and private citizens. The bottom line is that the [FCC] process appears broken and most of the blame appears to rest with Chairman Martin."
Since this is an election year and there is no love lost between Chairman Dingell and Chairman Martin, one must take this with a grain of salt. The article also summarized some of Chairman Martin's recent efforts to improve transparency, such as the recent announcement that topics of public meetings would be revealed 3 weeks in advance.
