Spitzer's Revolution Will Be Televised, Boring


Make text smaller Make text larger




In the wee small hours of his first day in office, Governor Eliot Spitzer signed several executive orders, one of which will demand that state agencies get their act together and plan to broadcast all their relevant meeting over the Internet by July 1, 2007. Anyone familiar with the New York State Legislative Channel that is currently available on local cable providers should rejoice: Governor Spitzer is working hard to find new ways to bore you.


My review of the Legislative Channel from last year can be found [here]. As bad as it may be, a televised hearing of the Public Service Commission would probably be exponentially worse. Open government is good for insomniacs.
