Bill O'Reilly, the host of a popular prime time show on 21st Century Fox's Fox News, yesterday defended himself against accusations that he had falsely claimed to have reported on the Falklands war and to have covered "active war zones," according to The New York Times. O'Reilly, who says he covered violent demonstrations in the aftermath of the war, last night played footage of violent protests in Argentina following the conflict and spoke with a former NBC News bureau chief who said there were tanks in the streets of Buenos Aires when OReilly was there, the newspaper stated.

13:56 EDTT, VZAT&T VP critical of Dish auction tactics
AT&T (T) VP of Federal Regulatory Joan Marsh stated in a post to a corporate blog that FCC Auction 97 represents "hard evidence that there is significant continuing interest in licensed spectrum... It didn't matter that it was mid-band spectrum. It mattered only that it was broadband spectrum." Marsh notes that Dish (DISH) won more licenses than any other bidder though "none of that spectrum is currently supporting commercial wireless services," with her suggestion being that "auctions should be designed to ensure that licenses go to those willing to deploy networks not speculators or stockpilers...The government should continue to place a high priority on allocating new licensed bands to the wireless industry." Marsh continues her analysis of Dish, claiming the double and triple-bidding activity carried out by its two designated entities "circumvented auction activity rules, masked actual demand and distorted the auction," as they were able to win significant allocations while enjoying a 25% small business discount. In response to Dish claims that all companies use DEs, Marsh replies that "in more recent auctions... bidders like AT&T, Verizon (VZ) and T-Mobile (TMUS) had no DE relationships, participated directly and paid full price for their licenses."
