NAB again urged the FCC to reject the proposed satellite radio merger.

In a document filed with the commission, the trade association stated: “Now that NAB and others have had an opportunity to review the voluminous economic analysis that applicants filed at the close of the pleading cycle, it is clearer than ever that the commission would be discarding long-standing merger review standards if it approves this merger.”

The strategy of XM and Sirius “has not been subtle,” argues NAB, which adds, “they recognize that following the commission’s legal standards would kill the merger, so they try to kill the standards instead.”
