Digital switch may be put off

In a move certain to make a lot of people angry, the digital TV switchover may not take place on Feb. 17 as planned.

The new Obama administration wants to postpone the switch because money to fund those digital converter box coupons have run out. The possible move is being supported by the four major networks.

With all the time, money, and TV commercials devoted to this transition, why are they now deciding to postpone the switch? Thank you Kevin Martin, FCC, and the federal government, you’ve done it again. I guess the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions aren’t the only sorry organizations who are thoroughly mismanaged… Maybe the government should hire Lovie Smith and Matt Millen to run this now-wasteful program… it would make no difference.
