Third Circuit Decision on Media Ownership, July 2011

Third Circuit Decision on Media Ownership, July 2011

Ratings: (0)|Views: 34 |Likes:
Published by Josh Stearns
On Thursday , the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit issued its long-awaited verdict on the Federal Communications Commission’s disputed media ownership rules. The court threw out FCC rules that would have allowed one company to own a newspaper and broadcast stations in the same market and upheld the FCC’s decision to retain its other local broadcast ownership restrictions. The court also instructed the FCC to better consider how its rules will affect and can promote ownership by women and people of color.
