“I’d say a Republican Congress will definitely help the broadcast industry, as it will all big business. The trend will be toward greater deregulation, and pro-business, anti-labor legislation will pass more easily than before.”
Bob Laurence, TV critic, San Diego Union-Tribune
“Well, since both parties crave coverage, it’s not a question of either/or. Both parties are willing to give broadcast kings the run of the land.”
Tim Feran, TV critic, Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch
“Republicans are always more friendly to corporations than to actual people, but given how profoundly ineffectual Democrats have proven themselves to be of late I doubt they can help anyone with anything.”
David Kronke, TV critic, Los Angeles Daily News
