Congress blames Martin for FCC's broken process

A House committee investigating the FCC's management policies has initially concluded that FCC chairman Kevin Martin is largely to blame for what it calls the FCC's broken process. The investigation began late last year after House Commerce Committee chairman John Dingell (D-Mich.) wrote Martin about concerns over the lack of transparency in the FCC's decision-making process.

"We have conducted more than 30 interviews with current and former [FCC] employees as well as industry representatives and private citizens. The bottom line is that the [FCC] process appears broken and most of the blame appears to rest with Chairman Martin," a committee memo stated.
