ARS TECHNICA ON THE DIGITAL TV MESS: 4G war, conflicts of interest loom behind possible DTV delay. “Among those with a vested interest in the debate over a DTV delay is Clearwire, which has been racing to deploy its 4G WiMAX networks ahead of competitors wedded to the LTE standard. And Ars has learned that Clearwire Executive Vice President R. Gerard Salemme has been playing a key advisory role on the DTV changeover within the Obama transition team.”

UPDATE: Megan McArdle: “The Obama team should never have let Salemme get this involved.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: Maybe the Obama people should have checked the relationship map.
