MAP Says Fox Waivers Give Broadcaster Undue Retransmission Clout

In a letter to Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski, the Media Access Project contends that Fox is "improperly leveraging" its duopoly in New York, one that was secured through a now-expired FCC waiver. MAP wrote that the FCC's failure to force divestiture or to act on challenges to News Corp. requests for "regulatory largesse," have given the latter an "unfair advantage" in the retransmission dispute.
