Die, FCC, Die!


Declan McCullagh, author of our sensational June cover story on our "Database Nation," calls for an end to the Federal Communication Commission:

It's time to abolish the Federal Communications Commission.

The reason is simple. The venerable FCC, created in 1934, is no longer necessary.

Its justification for existence was weak 70 years ago, but advances in technology since then have eliminated whatever arguments remained. Central planning didn't work for the Soviet Union, and it's not working for us. The FCC is now an agency that does more harm than good….

Whole thing here.
