Jun 18, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Bloomberg LP, the parent company of Bloomberg News and Bloomberg TV, has been denied its request with the Federal Communications Commission for more time to review the Comcast-NBC Universal deal, reports TVNewser.com.

As reported earlier, Bloomberg had requested more time amid concern that competitor CNBC may get an unfair advantage once the merger is closed, such as CNBC receiving better channel positions.

According to TVNewser, the FCC’s Media Bureau wrote in a memo that it found "interested parties have had sufficient time to identify their potential concerns and frame any issues that they wish to raise and relief that they wish to propose."
