Powell Out, Stern Happy; Next Up?
(Sponsor: Lok Technology)
As Dan Brekke recently wrote it looks like we have seen the last of Mr. Powell as head of the FCC. Rumors swirl as to his next move, perhaps Governor of Virginia as the Atlanta Jornal Consitition suggested (AJC Registration Required). But the more interesting question, now that Powell is yesterday's news, is who will be replacing him?
CNN's Money reported this morning that Howard Stern said of his friend Powell:
"Thank God he's gone," he said. "This is a great day in broadcasting."But perhaps Stern is forgetting that Bush will appoint Powell's replacement... This may look more like "out of the frying pan and into the fire" for Stern and others who cross the Fundamentalist position on free speach...
