Submission + - FCC Relaxed Media Ownership, ignores public (

anthrax writes: "Completely ignoring Congress and public comments, the FCC voted to relax ownership rules which prevented broadcasters from owning newspapers in the nation's 20 largest media markets. After holding several public hearings that overwhelmingly opposed the relaxation or the rules, and Congressional hearing where Democratic and Republican (even Ted "The Internet is Tubes" Stevens) voiced opposition to the move, the FCC voted 3 to 2 to change the rules. Not hard guessing the political affiliation of the votes."
