The Senate has finally confirmed ROBERT MCDOWELL for the fifth seat on the FCC.
The vote on FRIDAY came after MCDOWELL's nomination languished on hold by Sen. JAY ROCKEFELLER (D-WV) for months. MCDOWELL's copnfirmation means that the present 2-2 Republican-Democrat deadlock has been broken, with Republicans now in a 3-2 majority.
