Statement of FCC Spokesperson regarding AOL/Time Warner Transaction

The FCC staff is engaged in ongoing analysis and review of the proposed AOL/Time Warner merger transaction and has made no recommendations to the full Commission on the matter.

Any media stories about potential staff recommendations or draft reports can only be based on incomplete and speculative analysis and do not accurately reflect the decision-making process at the FCC.

The FCC staff is continuing its analysis of the record in this transaction and will make its recommendations to the Commission upon completion of this review. At that time, the Commission will review the staff recommendations and make its decision.
