Confusion reigns: Does the Broadcasting Board of Governors exist, or not?
Wednesday, January 25th 2017
Last month President Obama signed a law abolishing the Broadcasting Board of Governors; see for example http://www.publicdiplomacycouncil.org/commentaries/11-30-16/bbg-oversigh...
Yet today the (perhaps nonexistent) BBG named a new chairman; see https://www.bbg.gov/2017/01/25/bbg-announces-new-acting-board-chairman/
As President Obama noted when he signed the bill into law last month, Constitutional barriers may prevent Congress abolishing BBG. But he signed the bill anyway. And now?
Or is all of this moot in the new Trump administration?
