Public and Congress Set to ChallengeNew media ownership rules adopted by the Federal Communications Commission in a December 18th vote, removed longstanding regulations prohibiting local newspapers from owning a broadcast outlet in the same city or market. Changes to the newspaper/broadcast cross-ownership ban, sought by FCC Chairman Kevin Martin, passed in a party-line vote with the three Republican Commissioners supporting the measure and two Democrats in opposition.
New FCC Media Cross-Ownership Rules
Interview with Craig Aaron,
Opponents of the ownership rules change were angered at the 11th hour revisions to the measure that granted 40 permanent waivers to big media companies, like Tribune, News Corp., Media General and Gannett that have for many years violated the cross-ownership ban. Of major concern to many is the effect further deregulation will have on decreasing diversity, competition and locally originated programming on media outlets around the nation.
Many of the same groups from across the U.S. political spectrum that rallied to successfully block sweeping ownership deregulation proposed by the FCC in 2003, have vowed to fight again to stop these latest changes. Between The Lines' Scott Harris spoke with Craig Aaron, communications director with the media reform group Free Press, who assesses the impact of the FCC vote, and how the public and Congress can reverse the ownership deregulation scheme.
