Beacham notes "Because it has deep pockets, broadcast lobbyists will ask Congress for protection. Congress will try to help, but in the end the battle will be fruitless. It will be like trying to help the horse-and-buggy industry when automobiles were first arriving in the showrooms."

Believe it if you like, but that’s stuff for way into the future—if it’s ever to happen at all.” http://ow.ly/18cNP
