FCC Releases TV Ownership Cap Draft

In anticipation of a Dec. 14 vote, the FCC today released the draft of the rulemaking on whether the national ownership cap on TV stations should be "retained, modified or eliminated." It makes no recommendation, although FCC Chairman Ajit Pai is seen as favoring loosening the cap or eliminating it. With the Sinclair-Tribune merger pending and possibly in mind, the draft asks whether station groups that exceed any new cap should be grandfathered.

I wonder. Did Sinclair write this draft?

Bye-bye internet neutrality. Bye-bye ownership caps. GOPers once again bow down before their corporate masters.
