Should we want a bipartisan FCC?

The short answer is, “No!” But not for the reasons that you might imagine. It’s not because, as our former president famously boasted, “Elections have consequences,” and now Republicans are in charge. It’s also not because the agency should just do the right thing, regardless of who disagrees. It’s because in an independent regulatory agency like the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), political alliances should be left at the door. That has not been the case the past few years and now is the time for change.
