GOP leads charge against new FCC rules
The FCC decision lifting limits on media ownership passed on a 3-2 partisan vote. The congressional opposition now brewing is a bipartisan affair.
In fact, leading the charge is none other than disgraced GOPer segregationist Trent Lott:
Sen. Trent Lott of Mississippi told a news conference there was no partisanship in Senate opposition to the new cap.Of course, all the action seems to be happening in the Senate, with little indication of GOP reaction in the House. It will be interesting to see how DeLay and Hastert react (neither of whom have commented publicly). Posted June 02, 2003 04:27 PM | Comments (44)
