Tom Evslin for FCC Chairman

Comments (5)

I didn’t come up with this idea – Om Malik did.  But he’s absolutely right – Obama needs to look outside the beltway for many key positions, including FCC Chair.  Tom Evslin is an absolute star in my book and as Om states:

"Tom Evslin, who is a retired telecom executive, is the kind of person I would expect to be in the FCC. He knows the machinations of the big companies and at the same time is an Internet liberal who can keep broadband providers and their anti-consumer tricks under check."

While Tom graciously responded in his post The Importance of the FCC that "[he's] flattered although neither a likely choice (that’s an understatement) nor a candidate" help me and Om start a real drumbeat.  Obama was elected on a platform of change – let’s bring some completely fresh leadership and thinking into the mix.

    Brad,

    Do you have a specific call for action (e.g. petition)?

      I don’t at this point – I’m waiting for Om to put one together!

    Brad:

    I think that Henry Rivera is a shoe in for FCC Chair. He served under Jimmy Carter and resigned when Reagan was elected. He instituted minority ownership of radio stations (many of which went belly-up in the Bush years). Henry feels this is his chance to finish his and Carter's addenda and bring back the Fairness Doctrine and bring more regulation to the radio industry.

    O is just picking people inside the beltway, i.e Joe Biden, not the change that we expected.
