House Judiciary To Hold Field Hearing On Comcast/NBCU


The Federal Communications Commission may not yet have agreed to any field hearings on the proposed Comcast/NBCU deal, but Congress has.
According to an e-mail notification, the House Judiciary Committee has scheduled a hearing on the $30 million joint venture for June 7, at 9 a.m., in Los Angeles.
A spokesman for the committee confirmed the hearing, saying field hearings were not unusual for the committee and that he expected it would be presided over by committee chairman John Conyers (D-Mich.).
By that time, the FCC is planning to have re-started its informal shot clock on vetting the deal.
