Network stations challenge ownership rules in court

August 11, 2003

The Network Affiliated Stations Alliance (NASA), representing 600 broadcast stations affiliated with the big three networks, has asked the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. to overturn the FCC’s June 2 decision to raise the cap on national TV ownership to 45 percent of the nation’s TV homes.

NASA, which is asking for a return to the current 35 percent cap, charged that the FCC’s decision was "arbitrary, capricious, and otherwise not in accordance with law."
