FCC Overturn Is Victory For America

So what does the committee vote mean? “It is no overstatement to say that the committee’s vote was a victory, or at least a step on the road to victory, for the American people. To put it another way: If Frank Capra’s idealistic Sen. Jefferson Smith, from the film ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,’ really existed, he would be jumping for joy right now.”
