Prometheus Sues Pai FCC Over Broadcast Dereg

Says it failed to do due diligence on diversity

Continuing a Groundhog Day-like cycle of FCC media ownership decisions and trips to court, the Prometheus Radio Project, which has been battling media deregulation for a decade and a half, has filed suit against the FCC's recent decision to eliminate the newspaper-broadcast cross ownership and loosen other broadcast regulations, saying the FCC "ignores evidence in the record, misinterprets evidence, and fails to consider important aspects of the record."

Thanks Third Circuit Court. :evil:

Stay Slay Puts FCC Rules Reform On Final Path

A request by two anti-consolidation entities for an emergency stay of the FCC’s media ownership order, which effectively ends the ban on cross-ownership rules such as broadcast/newspaper combinations and radio/TV combinations in the same market, has been denied.
