/// Public Interest Groups, Cable Companies Oppose Gannett-Belo Merger
Gannett's $2.2 billion deal to buy Belo to become a 43 TV station super group is opening up some old-media consolidation wounds in Washington. Several public interest groups representing newspaper and cable TV concerns filed petitions with the Federal Communications Commission to either deny the deal or impose conditions on the proposed merger. They include Free Press, Common Cause, The Newspaper Guild-CWA and the American Cable Association, which is filing its petition along with DirecTV and Time Warner Cable.
