August 6, 2007 at 7:41 AM (PT)
Add Sen. BYRON DORGAN (D-ND), of the Democratic Policy Committee and member of the Senate Commerce Committee and Appropriations Committee, to the list of opponents of the XM-SIRIUS merger. DORGAN has written a letter to FCC Chairman KEVIN MARTIN and Assistant Attorney General THOMAS BARNETT urging their rejection of the satellite radio merger.
DORGAN's letter notes that XM and SIRIUS were "lucky" to win the licenses and now have "an obligation to serve the public in accordance with the market for audio news and entertainment."
