NYT's Rash Call for Wireless Over-Regulation

If you want an upside-down view of wireless competition, look no further than the New York Times' October 25 editorial. In the space of one short editorial, the NYT board manages to dismiss the dramatic innovation and choices that consumers now enjoy in the wireless market, call for bill shock regulation, demand extra regulatory conditions on future spectrum auctions, and even urge imposition of a Title II common carrier regime over wireless. Scott Cleland picks the editorial apart in a blog post titled "NYT's Uninformed War on Competition Policy."
