Ajit Pai submits plan to allow more media consolidation
The Federal Communications Commission will vote next month on ending a rule that prevents joint ownership of newspapers and TV or radio stations in the same geographical market.
The change is part of a larger overhaul of media ownership rules announced yesterday by FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.
Currently, the FCC says its newspaper/broadcast station cross-ownership rule "prohibit[s] common ownership of a daily newspaper and a full-power broadcast station (AM, FM, or TV) if the station's service contour encompasses the newspaper's city of publication."
Pai is proposing to eliminate that rule and others. He announced the move during an FCC oversight hearing in Congress yesterday, saying he wants to "pull the government once and for all out of the newsroom."

So fake news is what you disagree with?
Is there an absolute true fact or are facts subjective through a lib or conserv bias that push to the L or the R?
