We offer no comment on the story (“FCC’s Martin Named ‘Porker of the Month’”), which appeared in TVNewsday on October 23. We do, however, observe that Commissioner Adelstein is quoted there as having said of the decision to sponsor the Number 38 Digital TV Transition Ford Fusion: “This doesn’t seem like the most efficient use of resources.”
If that quote is accurate, we’ll take it to mean that Commissioner Adelstein is not ready to settle into the passenger seat, put his feet up on the dash, and take a few quick laps around the track. (See graphic, previously posted on this site.) So if he didn’t support the NASCAR sponsorship, and Commissioner Copps didn’t, either (that’s at least what we were advised last week), the list of possible supporters is dwindling fast.
