Picture of the Day: The FCC Non-Webcast

Mari Silbey —  September 11, 2007


Seriously, if you’re going to offer an “audio/video broadcast” of an event, I expect a little more than muzak and images of businessmen casually conversing. That’s what I got for more than 4 hours when I activated the FCC’s AV link that was supposed to show me coverage of today’s open commission meeting. Guess I’ll be waiting for updated info on a-la-carte programming and digital must-carry rules from someone who made it there in person.

UPDATE: Multichannel News reports that the public meeting never happened because FCC leaders were “stuck in negotiations all day Tuesday.”  The hold-up is primarily debate over the digital must-carry rules.

More exciting photos after the jump.
