is a crusty old IT reporter who lives near Washington D.C. and covers a lot of Federal Government actions, especially those that have to do with technology, for several well-known publications. He did a lot of the original coverage of both the LightSquared debacle
and AT&T's attempt to buy T-Mobile
. Note the word "original" in there. An awful lot of today's online "news" stories quote other stories. Wayne is totally not
a fan of that kind of "reporting," as you'll learn toward the end of this video. What he *does* respect is the old-fashioned way of gathering information: lots of research and digging.
