'Santa' Came Early: Now, With Deal Done, What Is Tribune's Next Move in FCC Cross-Ownership Fight?

With all the focus on the transfer of Tribune Co. assets to Sam Zell on Thursday, the recent debate, and then decision, on the Federal Communications Commission's cross-ownership ban took a back seat for a spell.

It's sure to revive shortly, of course, with the Tribune, which benefits greatly from the highly partisan 3-2 FCC vote this week, still not completely pleased. The rest of the industry, and activists who have fought to keep the ban, are still hopping mad about its partial lifting.

Mark Karlin, editor and publisher of the popular site, offers commentary from the "pro-ban" side, focusing on the complicated Tribune entanglement. It can be found here.
