FOX "BLASTS" NAACP STATEMENTS TO FCC
Published March 10, 1995
Fox Broadcasting "slammed" a submission to the FCC by the NAACP as "false, 'misleading, illogical' and counterproductive." The NAACP is attempting to overturn an '85 ruling approving Fox's purchase by News Corp. Chair Rupert Murdoch. Yesterday was the final day for comments on submissions to an FCC staff review of the decision. Staff recommendations are expected early next month. Possible actions include confirming the '85 decision or making modifications to the decision which would then lead to a formal FCC hearing (John Durie, N.Y. POST, 3/10).
