Washington — The Federal Communications Commission said last week it would not launch a planned review of a rule than bans the common ownership of a broadcast property and a newspaper in the same market.

FCC sources said a clash among agency members over the document's scope — formally, a notice of proposed rulemaking — prompted Powell to pull it from the May 10 agenda.
