after almost a year of saying February 17 is going to be the cutoff, President O feels that too many Americans won't be ready. So now it is going to be June 12.

The NTIA had nearly 2.6 million coupon requests on a waiting list as of last Wednesday.

Fuck them. Sheesh, poor people. Their own fucking fault they don't have cable and can't afford to spend 80 bucks on a converter.

House shot it down. It remains February 17.

WASHINGTON -- The U.S. House defeated a bill Wednesday to postpone the upcoming transition from analog to digital television broadcasting by four months to June 12.The defeat is a setback for the Obama administration and Democrats on Capitol Hill, who fear too many Americans are not ready for the switchover.
