bought-out whores

Late Friday night, the XM/Sirius Satellite merger was approved by the FCC. the news was first broken by the Wall Street Journal and Broadcasting & Cable magazine. The vote came down along party lines, 3-2 with only Adelstein and Copps against. The vote was held late Friday night, like a typical robbery.

I thought about it for 2 days and decided that the issue was clear, the FCC commissioners voting for are bought-out whores. There was every legal reason to block the merger, and no reason to grant it except bribery. Write your rep, write your senator.
