FCC Photos & Notes

7:50 AM -- Here are some snapshots from Friday's FCC meeting:

And a few more notes and quotes:

  • Sharon King, president and CEO of Dallas Community Television, ended her testimony before the panel by gushing, "Mr. Martin, you look younger in person than you do on TV."

  • A FiOS TV customer, Vernon Drewa, testified on behalf of Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE: VZ) And he shared a microphone with AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) executive VP Lea Anne Champion, who bordered on giggling every time Drewa spoke. Drewa is a senior citizen, a Navy vet, an electronics expert, and he seemed to be a gentle soul. So will I go to Hell for wondering how much Verizon punched up his script?

  • "There's nothing hypothetical about AT&T's deployment," AT&T's Champion remarked at one point. She was responding to a shot from cable industry lawyer Daniel Brenner, who was not-so-subtly making fun of the fact that IPTV is barely off the carrier's launch pad.
