Listen to Professor Matthew Nagler (Economics, Accounting, and Business Administration) talk about the Federal Communications Commission's (FCC) 2003 decision to relax its rules governing media ownership because of emerging technologies like the Internet. The rules, which would have given media owners the ability to own multiple news outlets, are now back on the chopping block, with the FCC ready to present a new set of modified rules before the Third Circuit Court of Appeals.
