The combo of Congressional elections and a jampacked media/telecom/tech agenda could make this a very interesting year. The centerpiece: the Senate Commerce Committee’s hearing line-up starting with Thursday’s all-male usual suspects session on “decency.”
. Don’t be surprised if the discussion includes extending broadcast rules on decency to cable, satellite and even online. Panelists include Echostar Chairman Charlie Ergen and Comcast EVP David Cohen.
Also on the agenda, telecom reform, net neutrality, wireless issues and more.
