I'm not really sure how this appeared on my screen, but it did.  The
separate statement of Commissioner Jonathan S. Adelstein (former Daschle
aide) in ET Docket 04-186 (in part):

"Television broadcasts are viewed by people as perhaps the most sacred use
of public spectrum.  Their TV is not to be trifled with.  We will hear an
earful from consumers if this is not done right."

Commissioner Adelstein is not a particular fan of broadcasting. He offered
this in the context of interference.  Those rabid anti-broadcasting critics
on this list should note:  it's not the broadcasters who you are really
attacking: it's the majority of viewers, who you believe should not have
access to free TV.

Note "most sacred use."  Eddie Fritts of the NAB could not have said it
