coverup at the FCC?

Well, this is from the people who do Consumers' Reports, so it's very credible:

It recently came to light that top Federal Communications Commission officials ordered the destruction of studies that would have undermined the agency's controversial justification for loosening media ownership rules a couple of years ago – information that only became public when it was leaked to U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer last month. That attempt by the FCC to scrap its long-standing media ownership rules was eventually struck down by a federal court, but now the agency is at it again. By burying studies because they don't fit their political agenda, top officials of the FCC have clearly shown they cannot be trusted to protect the public interest when it comes to media ownership. Today is the deadline for public comments on the FCC's latest attempt to relax these important media ownership rules.
