Issue: (1) Whether the scarcity doctrine of Red Lion Broadcasting Co. v. FCC , should be overruled, thereby invalidating the Federal Communications Commission’s media ownership rules; and (2) whether the FCC’s continued restriction on the cross-ownership of newspapers and broadcast stations in the same market violates the First and Fifth Amendments because it singles out newspapers among all forms of mass communication for unequal treatment.
