NAB steps in.

The Prometheus Radio Project and the Media Mobilizing Project have filed a lawsuit challenging the FCC’s intention to eliminate the newspaper-broadcast and radio-TV cross-ownership prohibitions, and now the NAB has filed a motion to intervene in that case. The NAB filed its motion in the U.S. District Court for the Third Circuit, saying, “Granting the relief requested by Petitioners in these cases would impair our members’ ability to compete effectively and provide quality local service in today’s media marketplace.”
