Not sure what Ms. Rosenworcel or Clyburn can add to the discussion. Jessica will simply tell everyone, “We need your spectrum, period.” And Mignon will do her usual waffle of “We want your spectrum but I want diversity in broadcast station ownership too.” Frankly, a person has to be crazy to want to be a broadcast station owner nowadays what with the schizophrenic leadership at the FCC. BTW, someone needs to remind Jessica about her little coda of “fairness to all stakeholders” that she used to say in connection with the incentive auction. Haven’t heard that from her lately. Of course, that phrase begs the question as to what is fair and maybe that’s why she stopped saying it.
