Powell Stepping down from FCC

And so the reign of conglomeration of corporate media during his short term of three years is over. Michael Powell has decided that he will follow in the footsteps of his father and leave the administration.

Though Powell's bio isn't that great once can only hope the next guy will be someone better more informed, and more inclined to shape the airwaves for what they are indended to be.

Public, not corporate.

Perhaps the man who should be promoted to Chair is Michael J. Copps.
