If you’ve been reading Salon for the last couple of years this new FCC decision should come as no surprise. If you haven’t been, you can catch up on our coverage of the FCC here and of “the Media Borg,” as we have been calling it for two years, here.
Trent Lott says, “I want to emphasize that there is not a partisan position here,” and indeed he is criticizing the decision along with some other Republicans in Congress. Still, you can’t seriously argue that this decision — pushed through by President Bush’s FCC chairman, who happens to be the son of Bush’s Secretary of State; supported by the three Republican members of the FCC; and opposed by the two Democratic members — does not have a big GOP rubber stamp all over it.
