The Third Circuit Court of Appeals has declined a broadcaster petition for en banc rehearing of its media ownership ruling. A three-judge panel of the court in July voted 2-1 to vacate the Federal Communications Commission's loosening of the newspaper-broadcast crossownership ban (though on procedural grounds), smacked down some of its ownership diversity efforts, and supported the decision not to loosen other ownership regulations.
