FCC POWELL SETS STAGE FOR EXIT IN INTERVIEW: 'I HAVE A TIRED FAMILY, TIRED CHILDREN AND A TIRED SPOUSE'
Sun Sep 21 2003 17:25:30 ET
**Exclusive Sneak Preview**
Michael K. Powell, the embattled chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, appears to be setting the stage for an exit with a candid interview pipelined for Monday runs of the NEW YORK TIMES.
Newsroom sources tell DRUDGE that Powell has gone on-the-record with NYT's Steve Labaton for a wide-ranging explanation of current affairs.
"I have a tired family, tired children and a tired spouse. Candidly, I once said I would be in this job for three years and then leave," Powell explains. "That was three years ago."
"I've been called every name in the book by every opponent in the book," he adds. "That's classic Washington. If you can't get past jingoism, you attack the person. I wish the press would focus on more than who's rebuked and who's rebuking and look at what the best alternatives are for the public in terms of policy."
Labaton was said to be finalizing the text Sunday evening, for a Business section lead, sources tell DRUDGE.
