This week, the House Energy and Commerce Committee released a report accusing Kevin Martin, the chairman of the FCC, of being deceptive and opaque in his management of the agency's affairs. That a politician would pull such moves is no surprise, but the report should send a strong signal to the incoming Obama administration. "Chairman Martin withheld important and relevant data from the other Commissioners ... in an apparent attempt to enable the Commission to regulate cable television companies," the report states.
Obama has painted himself as one who believes that more government oversight and regulation is the way to improvement, even though he says that "government hasn't done a good job of running businesses" about the bailout issues. I'd be surprised to not see that Net Neutrality laws are on their way and this will be a stepping stone to an ever-increasing government involvement in Internet activities leading to new taxes and expense for all in America. How better to fund all of the expenses he has in mind???
