Headline Highlights for August 2008
Sept 3, 2008 Ah, August. Time to relax, to vacation. Washington shuts down and heads to the beach. Presidents go to ranches. Nothing important happens in August. But not this year. With the only major test of the digital television transition waiting in the wings, the Federal Communications Commission did not take the month off and issued what may be the most important regulatory decision ever concerning the Internet. And there's no way to forget that this is an election year including telecom policy positions from Republicans and Democrats.
