WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A U.S. appeals court has overturned an effort by communications regulators to modify certain media-ownership rules to make it easier to own a newspaper and a broadcast outlet in a single market.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit said on Thursday that the cross-ownership portion of the Federal Communications Commission’s 2008 order had failed to meet the notice and comment requirements set out by law.

WASHINGTON, June 23 (Reuters) – U.S. government officials
called for more testing of hedge fund manager Philip Falcone’s
satellite broadband start-up to address interference issues
with global positioning systems, but showed interest in finding
a solution rather than shutting the venture down.
Falcone’s LightSquared has come under fire after months of
testing found its original plan for a high-speed wireless
network would interfere with GPS services connected to aviation
and maritime operations, emergency communications systems,
weather tracking, General Motors Co’s (GM.N: Quote, Profile, Research, Stock Buzz) OnStar equipment
and countless other government and commercials uses.
