It seems that the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG) staff has been quite busy up on the “Hill” — with the proposed CEO legislation and the repeal of the Smith-Mundt Act.

Neither went anywhere.

Word on the street is that  the excuses are “Congress loves the ideas but this is not the right time.”  When would be a good time for these two silly ideas?

The BBG should try to fix what is broken — the Broadcasting Board of Governors and International Broadcasting Bureau (BBG/IBB) staff.

As the saying goes — if it ain’t broken why fix it? 

Smith-Mundt ain’t broken and there is no need for a CEO

Just asking?
