As of yesterday the FCC have yet to announce the meeting in Seattle, although the news media have picked up the efforts to relax cross-media ownership in competing coverage areas. While it is likely that the date for public hearings will be pushed back the Seattle location will probably stay the same. Groups are mobilizing to speak in opposition to the Zell/Tribune merger and relaxing rules protecting against cross media mergers. Until such time as another date is set, November 2 is still the accepted date but may be changed to the middle of November. Please visit The Oregon Alliance to Reform Media for more information on this matter and why it is so important to rural Oregon to fight this.
