Well, business has closed at the FCC for today, but that does not mean that all comments have been posted. However, given that today was the scheduled end for the Public Comment Period, and some interesting filings were bound to happen, we thought it best to update the FCC Comment Scorecard.
To date 5,200 comments have been filed. The Pro-Merger comments still hold 78% of the total, and the Anti-Merger comments remain at 21%. Likely, the FCC website will still be receiving comments through today, and their site will be updated again tomorrow. We will, of course, keep you posted on the process.
