Let's Get This Deal Done in Time for Baseball Season

As we noted last month , the announced merger between Sirius and XM is now over a year old. While FCC chairman Kevin Martin has hinted  that a decision may be out by the end of the first quarter, we hope that the Department of Justice won’t then claim that the dog ate their homework  on the deal.
Sirius Radio’s 6 million plus subscribers  were unable to follow their favorite baseball teams radio broadcasts last season since only XM carried MLB games. The government needs to get out of the way  so Sirius subscribers can better enjoy our national pastime this year.
