On the Ropes—Court of Appeals Fires Away at FCC in Comcast-Tennis Case

The FCC’s 1st decision finding that a cable operator violated program carriage rules appeared in jeopardy Mon morning, with a 3-judge panel of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals hammering the Commission with questions about its ’12 ruling that Comcast discriminated against Tennis Channel (Cfax, 7/25).

Here’s where the FCC’s case could be in trouble.
