Supreme Court To Consider Cross-Media Ownership Rules (

The Supreme Court agreed on Friday to hear an appeal by the Federal Communications Commission over its attempt to loosen restrictions on a company’s ability to own a local broadcast station and newspaper in the same market.

The FCC has been attempting to revise restrictions on cross-ownership since 2003, but the agency’s efforts have repeatedly been struck down in court.
