Not That FCC Commissioner, This One!

Down in the weeds of today’s McCain presser was the senator’s reference to that controversy over his letters to the FCC about Paxson Communications back in 2000 and McCain’s claim that “the former chairman of the FCC at the time in 2000” said there was no problem with the letters. We thought the common sense interpretation of that remark was that he was referring to William Kennard, the former FCC commissioner who the letters were addressed to. Au Contraire, the McCain camp tells Jake Tapper at ABCNews. It wasn’t Bill Kennard, the former FCC Chair who was in office in 2000. It was Reed Hundt, who was the former FCC Chair back in 2000. Here’s Jake. Here’s Paul’s response.
