Looks like BBR jumped the shark

Booooo. The ugly head of hyperpartisanship has reached BBR.

Clue stick time. BOTH parties want to sell off spectrum to the wireless companies.

Why do you think Obama is continuously harping about broadband?

Genachowski has been pushing for ending of OTA TV as we know it and selling the spectrum to wireless companies. Ever heard of the national broadband plan?

Genachowski aint no GOPer! He was Obama's best bud in Harvard Law School.

IT DOES NOT MATTER which party is in power. Whoever is in power will be dictated to by their telco masters.

Re: Looks like BBR jumped the shark

Agreed.

Verizon and AT&T will throw as much money as it takes to either party to get what they want, and for the most part it works.

Most regular consumers don't know, or understand, all that goes on with spectrum allotment anyway.

That's exactly what the article says, yet you disagree with it somehow...

Tip: pointing out that both parties are full of crap on technology policy (shocking) is not "hyperpartisanship." It's the exact opposite, and it should be something that's commonplace in all forms of media.

Tip: Putting your article title as "GOP Tech Platform: Give More Spectrum to AT&T and Verizon" is not pointing out both parties. It's misleading to say the least, as the GOP is featured prominently when the democrats are just as bad, or worse.

Re: Looks like BBR jumped the shark

Perhaps read the last two paragraphs of the article before whining. Looks pretty clear to me that both parties are being portrayed here (correctly, IMO) as hopeless.
