  • Dow Jones reports that the FCC is appealing an appeals court ruling that the TV nationwide ownership cap is unconsitutional. The FCC argues that it has the right to limit how much of the national audience a single company’s TV stations may reach. The parent companies of three major networks — FOX’s News Corp., NBC’s GE and CBS’s Viacom — made the court challenge against the FCC’s rules. Broadcasting and Cable also has a short report.

    Note that this is reported in the guise of business and industry news and not the national or politics news section of a prominent newspaper. The underlying assumption is that this isn’t important to anyone besides businesspeople.
