Quotable

“I learned long ago to go around expressing a preference for one chair or the other. I would only say this: I have worked with Chairwoman Rosenworcel for most of my career. When I was [FCC] chairman, I even tried to hire her to work for me. She was a wise woman and chose not to. Her career has not suffered one bit as a consequence. I have a really healthy respect for her intellect and her fair mindedness. We look forward to working with her in her acting capacity. If she should be so lucky as to be appointed by the president, we look forward to working with her then.”

– NCTA president/CEO Michael Powell on C-SPAN’s “Communicators” discussing whether Jessica Rosenworcel should be made permanent FCC chair
