Spectrum Auction, DirecTV, The Donald

Those are what’s on my mind this afternoon. First is the good news for broadcast spectrum sellers that the FCC is listening to the EOBC and the NAB and making changes in the incentive auction rules. Second, the commission needs to listen to broadcasters and require DirecTV to keep its 12-year-old promise to carry all local TV stations in a market. Quit stalling. And, third, please NBC, cut all ties to Donald Trump. The network and the nation will be better for it.
