said by nasadude:The most likely interpretation runs more to paranoid than anything else.
these meetings are closed because they don't want the public to know what they are doing (or planning to do).
Why the meetings are closed:
least bad interpretation - the FCC just wants to hear what the incumbents really want (which they presumably would not admit in a public meeting; I leave it to you to guess why they won't say in a public meeting)
most likely interpretation - the incumbents are telling the FCC what it is they will accept and give the FCC their marching orders.
