Straight Talk Express

When Senator McCain said this today, regarding the recent NYT article on his relationship with a telecom lobbyist, who did you think he was talking about?
And the former chairman of the FCC at the time in 2000 said that was more than an appropriate role for me to play as chairman of the oversight committee.
If you said William Kennard, who was the FCC chairman in year 2000, you are not alone. But according to McCain, you are incorrect. You see, he was talking about Reed Hundt, who served as FCC chair until 1997 and thus was a former FCC chairman in the year 2000.

Straight talk indeed.
