The broadcasters will look like the bad guys

You just know they'll come out of this looking awful. They don't have the budget to support two broadcast frequencies (to the tune of the thousands of dollars per month) for another 4 months. The revised bill allows them to voluntarily shut off their analog towers, and most of them will do so to save money. People in affected areas will look for someone to blame, will discover the government allowed the delay but the stations switched anyway, and they will blame the 'evil businesses.'
