We kinda saw this coming.

We saw how the FCC wanted HAMS to go help out in an ill conceived 

Now, our esteemed new President wants a delay until he can figure out 
how to fix the problem and manipulate the old news media on the issue.  See

So many people are now on the Internet and network TV is such a 
"wasteland" it may not matter at all what he does.

In a similar vein, the Seattle Intelligencer is up for sale and if a 
buyer is not found in 60 days they may just close the doors and walk away.

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it does it 
make a sound?

If a newspaper ceases publishing and there are no readers who care does 
it matter?

If a TV station switches over to DTV and nobody gets a free converter 
box will anybody watch?
