Wolfowitz to the World Bank and Kevin Martin as FCC chief. Wolfowitz was reported to have removed himself from the running but whether that was a real or fake news report it's difficult to say. In any case, the IPS listed the top-ten reasons why he's such a darn good choice: "He can develop a pre-emptive poverty doctrine where the World Bank could invade countries that fail to make themselves safe for U.S. business, modeled on the U.S. pre-emptive war doctrine he helped craft." As for FCC appointee Martin, Free Press founder Bob McChesney wrote: "Martin faces a choice of whether to continue business as usual or... to learn what Americans want out of their media system. If Martin and the majority at the FCC choose again to ignore the public, they will face an enormous backlash that will make 2003 look like a tiny ripple.” (Peek)
