Hang on a sec. Is Michael Powell — indency fines, media outlet consolidation, broadcast flags, yes, that Michael Powell — seriously trying to take credit for the consumer electronics boom?
Powell cited the growing popularity of cell phones, digital television, and digital music players as evidence of the technological advances during his tenure.
“Evidence of our success can be seen increasingly in the offices, the automobiles and the living rooms of the American consumer,” Powell said. “The seeds of our policies are taking firm root in the marketplace and are starting to blossom.”
Good riddance, you insufferable jackass.
