Actual good news from the FCC?

The New York Times writes that the admin is going to abandon its fight to allow increased media consolidation:

The Bush administration says it won't appeal a court decision that blocks proposed regulations aimed at loosening limits on media ownership.

The Federal Communications Commission had until Monday, Jan. 31, to decide whether to appeal the ruling by the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia. The Justice Department, in consultation with the FCC, decided against taking the matter to the Supreme Court, said FCC spokeswoman Rebecca Fisher.
