FCC Begins Media Ownership Review
Washington - May 25, 2010 - The Federal Communications Commission released a notice of inquiry (NOI) as part of the 2010 quadrennial review of its media ownership rules. The NOI initiates a fresh look at the current rules to determine whether they promote the Commission's goals of competition, localism and diversity.
The NOI specifically asks for input on a number of issues, including:
The NOI also asks whether and how to use bright line rules, adopt a case-by-case approach, or adopt a broad cross-media approach to media ownership if the Commission determines the current rules no longer serve the public interest goals. The NOI additionally seeks comment on the costs and benefits of outlet-specific rules, as compared to rules that apply to all media together, and how the Commission's Broadband Plan may bear on its review.
Comments are due 30 days after publication in the Federal Register and reply comments, 45 days after publication.
