Pro & Con of FCC Chair Michael Powell’s Tenure

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On January 24, 2005 @ 8:59 pm In Finance,Media,Politics | Comments Disabled

On Saturday, I noted that a WSJ Poll gave retiring FCC Chair Powell an "F." [1]

I suspected that the poll might be of interest to sone people, so I forwarded it to the Interesting People [2] list; Professor Dave Farber is IP’s ringleader, and amongst his many incarnations was a stint on FCC’s Technological Advisory Council.

That generated a spirited debate. Here’s the two most informative commentaries about Powell (via Farber):

Judging Powell…did WSJ readers get it right? [3]

and

The Legacy of FCC Chairman Powelll — His score — "F" for "Forgeddaboutit." [4]    

Interesting reading for any followers of the telecom sector . . .
