House votes to delay digital TV transition
The House voted today 264-158 to delay the analog TV shutdown until June 12.
The nation was two weeks away from the original date of Feb. 17 for the digital transition, allowing broadcasters to replace analog TV signals with digital ones.
I posted this before, but I think it got buried in the many responses, so here it is again!
I'm no techie, but basically, one of Obama's big campaign fundraising "buddies" owns the Clearwire company. This company wants to be able to corner the market on the latest G4 technology. Verizon ALSO has a G4 system they want to get up and running, but in order to do so needs the current analog airwaves. The longer Clearwire can be the exclusive company offering this technology, the more profits this Obama buddy makes! Can you say conflict of interest?!
That's transparency for yah! (sarcasm)
