FCC Chairman Robert M. McDowell, a former telephone company lobbyist who has been on the commission 69 days, said he would proceed incrementally, rather than with an all-at-once approach, TVWeek.com reported Wednesday.
Such a tact was followed by former FCC Commissioner Michael Powell and struck down by a federal court that found the agency had failed to adequately justify its proposed changes and hold public hearings on them.
McDowell called omnibus media ownership reform "one big kidney stone to pass."
