Tribune Company v. Federal Communications Commission

Petition for certiorari denied on June 29, 2012

Linked with:

Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
11-696 3d Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2011

Issue: (1) Whether the scarcity doctrine of Red Lion Broadcasting Co. v. FCC , should be overruled, thereby invalidating the Federal Communications Commission’s media ownership rules; and (2) whether the FCC’s continued restriction on the cross-ownership of newspapers and broadcast stations in the same market violates the First and Fifth Amendments because it singles out newspapers among all forms of mass communication for unequal treatment.
