Sinclair and Clear Channel Lawyers working overtime.

Under Monday’s 3-2 vote, a broadcast company that sells 15 percent or more of a station’s advertising will be considered as owning that station. “What we’re doing is closing off what has been a growing end-run around [the FCC’s ownership] rules,” FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler said Monday.
"Everyone Should be aware that you're just a screen grab away from infamy."

Already the rule for radio stations, this change applies to TV station JSA/LSA's that had previously operated under waiver. Such as those operated by Sinclair in many cities. E.G., Channel 8 and Channel 11 in Charleston.
