SCOTUS reinstates FCC's new 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 key line in that story was that it was a unanimous decision.

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.

So Pai is pressing on...... 

 

The Solicitor General (on behalf of the FCC) have petitioned to the Supreme Court to review the Third Circuit's vacation of Pai's dereg rule. The NAB & and a slew of broadcasters have also wrote a similar petition.

 

We'll see if the higher court will hear their appeal. And if so, this would be historic.

I'm surprised Hearst isn't on that list given how much of this effects them the most.

Can you please explain for me what would this do, if anything?

Basically the parties involved are asking for SCOTUS to overturn the third circuit's ruling on the dereg moves the FCC made in the Fall of 2017 that was overturned by the Third Circuit only because the Third Circuit would much rather keep old regulations to drag down the industry than to allow the industry to survive and thrive (been that way for a while)

 

In short, the third circuit are being obstructionists of anything that the FCC is trying to do

It will be interesting to see if the Supreme Court will overturn the third court's ruling. Allowing cross newspaper/TV ownership and owning Two top 4 TV stations in the same market. The FCC and NAB were happy for the SC to hear the appeal. Will see how it plays out.
