Senate Postpones TV Shutdown to June 12

El Señor Presidente talks, and the Senate does: They have postponed the analog switcheroo four more months. The new date for the analog TV shutdown: June 12, pending Congress approval of the move.

Previously, the analog shutdown was going to happen in February 17, but with Nielsen estimating 6.5 million U.S. homes still with analog TV only, politicians have thought twice about taking the circus from the people, after their inability to give them bread. [ABC News]
