FCC Chairman William Kennard last week said he has asked the agency's inspector general to investigate how documents detailing the commission's plan to impose conditions on the ATT/MediaOne merger were leaked to lobbyists and the Wall Street Journal before the decision was officially released "That just shouldn't happen," he told reporters.
