A crop of comments have sprung up recently on whether regulatory analyses in rulemaking – economic, scientific, and otherwise –support a specific point of view.  At the same time, questions about whether public comments inherently bias a policy decision in a specific direction have arisen.  At bottom, information is the currency of the regulatory process – sticking one’s regulatory head in the sand, ostrich-like, is not an acceptable response.  If good analysis and public scrutiny informs… [read post]

Media Bureau “reminder” seems to eliminate any hope of extension of exemption for non-Top Four affiliates outside of top 50 DMAs. If you’re a TV licensee who doesn’t happen to be either (a) in any of the top 50 DMAs or (b) affiliated with one of the top four commercial networks (ABC, CBS, FOX and NBC), we’ve got some news for you: it looks like you’ll be having to upload all your new (but none of your old) political file data to your online public inspection file… [read post]

Public interest groups suggest FEC-like reporting system for TV stations A couple of months ago we reported that the FCC had asked for comments on whether or not to extend the political file component of the online public inspection file requirement to all TV stations. You will doubtless recall that, when the online public file system was first put into place in 2012, only Big Four network affiliates in the Top 50 markets were required to upload their political file materials. Everybody… [read post]

The six months that the FCC gave to television stations to upload the contents of their paper public files to their new online public file seemed like a long time back in August, when the deadline was announced and the online public file rule became effective. But that deadline is upon us, and the FCC yesterday issued a reminder that television broadcasters (full power and Class A stations) need to have all of their required documents uploaded to their online public file by Monday, February… [read post]

A question I am frequently and increasingly being asked by my colleagues is whether modern uses of technology to engage in sexual banter can constitute adultery as a ground for divorce in South Carolina.  Sexting, instant messaging, emailing, online role playing games and constant or lengthy phone calls (often assumed to be “phone sex”) have all been cited as evidence of adultery.  Combined with evidence of opportunity to commit an act of physical intimacy I certainly see their… [read post]

While rumors are flying that the FCC is rushing to adopt its proposals to require that TV stations put their public inspection files online (see our summary of the proposals here), both the FCC and public interest groups are targeting the public files of television stations - looking to copy some or all of those files.  Rumors are that the FCC inspected the public files of all television stations in at least one city - and asked for copies of the complete files to be produced at the FCC within a… [read post]

Unbeknownst to me until last week, on December 2, 2012 the South Carolina Supreme Court denied certiorari in the case of Moeller v. Moeller, 394 S.C. 365, 714 S.E.2d 898 (Ct. App. 2011), thus enshrining into South Carolina appellate case law one of the stupidest bases to award (heck, reverse) custody that our appellate courts have yet conceived. One of the reasons the Court of Appeals in Moeller reversed the award of custody to Husband was that it had the effect of separating the parties’ two… [read post]

“The Grand Chamber of the ECtHR recently tackled the question of whether the police tactic of ‘kettling’ (verb, UK, of the police – to contain demonstrators in a confined area) amounted to a deprivation of the liberty of four applicants within the meaning of Article 5(1) of the ECHR.” Full story UK Human Rights Blog, 2nd April 2012 Source: www.ukhumanrightsblog.com [read post]

Are you ready to file your next license renewal application?  It seems like the last license renewal cycle just ended (in fact, the last cycle is not over, as evidenced by the fact that the FCC in the last week has released several decisions dealing with late-filed renewals from the last cycle, and many TV stations still have license renewals that have not been granted due to pending indecency issues).  Nevertheless, a whole new cycle of Form 303 license renewal applications will soon be… [read post]
