POWELL AND COPPS: Communist sympathizers?

Among all the absurd, meddling, and stupid rulings from the FCC lately, this one really takes the Twinkie: The FCC fined a station for making a phony phone call to the real Fidel Castro -- and getting him on the line -- but not following commission rules about getting permission to put the person on the air.

More like rule-bound idiots, I'd say. There should be an exception for making fun of dictators.
