Blair Levin: FCC increasingly a political institution not an expert agency

Catch-Up Talk with Blair Levin Yields Some Surprises: "Levin said, “The FCC is becoming more of a political institution and less an expert agency.” Like other D.C. political institutions, he said, the commission is “increasingly caught up in a one-note narrative . . . of self-praise rather than focusing on providing the expertise and analytic agility necessary to adjust programs to provide bandwidth abundance to constituencies it is meant to serve.” In an interview with Telecompetitor on Friday, Levin directed further criticism at the FCC’s self-praise. “I would never invest in a company that had a CEO who behaved that way,” he said." 'via Blog this'
