The Sunday radio edition of the Drudge Report advised, "There's a push now to bring the FCC in on satellite radio...
All the Howard Sterns of the world are rushing there on the premise that they can say pretty much want they want, but some radio broadcasters are filing a petition with the FCC saying, listen, you do control satellite radio, you just don't know it. Let's just fantasize here for a second. Say this move toward internet and broadband and satellite really takes off in ten years. You don't think the government will find some way to regulate it? Of course they will. There'll be cries, please regulate what we're hearing. There is a battle coming. If broadband and wireless truly is the way we're going to do things, somebody is going to have their paws on it. And I'll never forget Hillary, right after Lewinsky and all that craziness, out there saying we have to find a way to regulate the internet. It was ridiculous, scary stuff -- she was the First Lady of the United States, and now she's the Senatress of New York, and the most popular Democrat. And this is what she has in her little peanut brain -- she wants to regulate the internet. She doesn't want to let one person create something that can challenge her husband."
