FCC Denies Bloomberg Extension Request on Comcast-NBCU

Bloomberg061610.bmpYesterday we reported that Bloomberg had filed a request with the FCC to extend the comment deadline on the proposed Comcast-NBC Universal deal. Today, the FCC rejected Bloomberg’s request.

According to a memo from William T. Lake, chief of the Media Bureau:

We agree with the Applicants that interested parties have had sufficient time to identify their potential concerns and frame any issues that they wish to raise and relief that they wish to propose.

In the ex parte meetings that many of those parties already have held with Commission staff, such parties generally have been able to articulate their areas of concern without the benefit of having reviewed the Applicants’ June 11th submissions.
