The American Federation of Television and Radio Artists said it was "extremely disappointed" in the FCC's announced media ownership review.
AFTRA lobbyist Thomas Carpenter said in a statement that a 120-day comment period is too brief for meaningful public discourse and that six public hearings are insufficient.
The NAB was happy with the FCC's decision.
It said in a statement: "NAB is pleased the FCC is moving forward with its media ownership review, and we hope the outcome brings greater clarity to rules that preserve free, over-the-air broadcasting's role as the premiere news, information and entertainment source for tens of millions of Americans."
