Drama vs. analysis: Can we save regulation at the FCC?

The rise of drama in regulatory decision-making has been a major contributor to the decline of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) over the past few years. If articles in major newspapers over the past few days are to be believed, the forces that gave rise to regulatory theater at the agency are continuing to press their spectacle. Let’s hope Chairman Ajit Pai and his colleagues Commissioners Mignon Clyburn and Michael O'Rielly continue to fight back and return the agency to its former solid analytical footing.
