Reps. BART STUPAK (D-MI) and STEVEN LATOURETTE (R-OH) have joined the list of elected officials opposing the XM-SIRIUS merger, writing a letter to Assistant Attorney General THOMAS BENNETT and FCC Chairman KEVIN MARTIN calling the merger "not in the best interest of our constituents" and saying that the satellite services are "significantly different from free over-the-air radio and other audio technologies, such as iPods. There is cuttently no existing audio service or product that qualifies as a viable substitute for satellite radio that could constrain the behavior of an XM-SIRIUS monopoly."
