Re: Experienced commissioner McDowell makes good points

The "Freshly appointed" adjective is supposed to make McDowell's points sound like they are coming from an inexperienced person. In fact, he took office more than a year ago.
One year of experience still isn't all that much...
At least 16 yrs experience in telecom. »www.fcc.gov/commissioners/mcdowe···phy.html
That's like saying ten years of college makes of a professor with one year of experience more experienced. Doesn't work that way.
Also, it is also worth pointing out that the group whose research McDowell uses in his editorial is far from unbiased and scientific. A Quote from the Pheonix Group's site:
"Founded in 1998, the Phoenix Centers mission is to maximize consumer welfare by promoting free markets, competition, and individual freedom and liberty."
Hardly a group whose research should be relied upon because, as a think-tank with an agenda, their research is already suspect to people who are properly trained.
