run the fuck away

Remind me again...

...why we think it is a good idea for a rather important branch of our government be answerable to no one? In this case, I'm talking about the FCC (one bad mother- watch your mouth). Just in case you didn't know, the FCC has no oversight, has no process that integrates with other parts of the Government, and is basically dictatorial when it comes to any items under it's purview. Increasingly this has caused more and more public debate over it's often draconian policies- culminating in this little gem.

What do you do when your internal study reveals that you've been issuing bad policies? Order the evidence destroyed.

(As a note, Congress can overrule the FCC by passing a law- but until that time, whatever the FCC says stands.)
