NAB Files Lawsuit over Ownership Rules

According to a report by TVNewscheck, the National Assocation of Broadcasters (NAB) has filed a lawsuit with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit challenging the FCC’s media ownership order as “arbitrary and capricious.” The organization challenged the FCC’s ruling in its required every-four-year review of its broadcast ownership rules, saying that “despite the obvious transformative changes in the media landscape in the decade since the commission’s last completed quadrennial review, the commission failed to take a fresh look at the broadcast ownership rules and to repeal or modify them in light of those changes.”
