Speaking of FCC oversight. . .

wheeler-pai-1FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler and Commissioner Ajit Pai found themselves on the barbie again last week, as the House Communications Subcommittee on FCC Oversight held yet another hearing. Once again, the battle lines were clearly drawn. A Committee memo states, “The abuses of delegated authority, lack of transparency and accountability in agency decision-making and other agency processes, and agency overreach, paint an unsettling picture.” Wheeler testified, “Since I arrived at the Commission, improving the way this agency does business has been a high priority.” Pai was a little more critical, saying, “The commission has not been transparent enough. . . And I also do not feel that I’ve been given enough information. . . Republican commissioners continue to be shut out of the process.”
