FCC proposed to modify Media Ownership rules.

Recommended Posts

And the courts themselves are slowly but surely being molded into Der Führer Drumpf's image because Republicans have allowed it to be so by leaving open any vacancies left behind during the previous administration's tenure. Corporate America and government are one in the same now if not already.

Yup. Paid Off will kill Net Neutrality outright with that 3-2 majority vote and that will be the ballgame. Nothing will stop Paid Off. Not Congress, not the courts. Nothing.

The new dereg measure is now posted in the Federal Register. It goes in effect February 7th.

 

That is unless the advocacy groups try to get an "emergency" stay granted from the courts (which is rare).

Looks like the court has sided with Prometheus on this one. The Third Circuit has vacated Pai's dereg in a 2-1 vote.

So a funny thing happened to Perry Sook's hopes of getting back WPIX in 2021.

Sounds like Paid Off can appeal this, but time is fast running out unless the rubber stamp right of SCOTUS wants to give him an assist.

The national ownership cap was not part of this media ownership matter. The matter was these changes (ending the NBCO rule and 8-voice test, tweaking the top-4 rule). 

 

Pai will no doubt appeal this ruling. But deals involving these rule changes that are pending right now (the KDLT deal to Gray (top-4), the KQTV deal to NPG (NBCO) and the KTTU deal to Tegna (8-voice test)) are in serious jeopardy. Nexstar should be happy that their deal was greenlighted before today's ruling.

And to no surprise, Pai is challenging the Third Circuit ruling by filing in a petition of review.

 

Wow. The Third Circuit is not going to hear the FCC's review to appeal of the court's vacation ruling

 

At this point, there's no other alternative other than taking their appeal to the Supreme Court. And that's going to be an even longer process.

Getting the Supreme Court to rule on this (if they take up the case) should be interesting. 

 

Also, I wonder if this delay is going to force Gray to hold off on their plans for KSFY/KDLT.
