FCC ORDERS GAG RULE ON FOX CASE
Published December 8, 1994
As federal regulators expanded their probe into charges that Fox Broadcasting's TV stations are "illegally controlled," a gag order was placed on those involved in the case. The FCC issued a "formal gag order" to Fox execs and their attorneys as well as to the NAACP New York Chapter. The order "highlights both the high- profile nature of the dispute and the political stakes for the FCC" (Paul Farhi, WASHINGTON POST, 12/8). The NAACP challenged Fox's New York license, "arguing Fox is a foreign-owned company" in violation of FCC policy (Bill Carter, N.Y. TIMES, 12/8). NBC launched a similar challenge last week. STOCK WATCH: News Corp.'s shares fell to a two-year low amid "uncertainty" over NBC's challenge (AP, 12/8).
