    this is great news. when the FCC was putting forth the new rules, even mr. powell couldn't come up w/ how it would benefit consumers.

    Indeed it is good news. Clear Channel has enough of a monopoly on the radio airwaves we don't need to allow them to buy up more.

    it surprised me when i heard it, but apparently CC doesn't have much interest in the TV market.

    look for Disney, Tribune Co. and the like to expand their holdings. if the rule changes are allowed to go into effect, of course.
