He also cited his plan to relax or repeal of numerous 1,000 pages of regulations on the book, and said that in the next FCC open meeting, a comprehensive rules review will be voted upon, with industry input encouraged.
Chairman Ajit Pai said on Tuesday the top US telecommunications regulator would launch a "comprehensive review" of media regulations and overhaul rules that restrict consolidation among media companies, potentially opening the door to a wave of deals among broadcasters and newspapers.
"We need to see which rules are still necessary and which should be relaxed or repealed", Pai said.
He also hinted that the commission would look to roll back regulations on media ownership. But the FCC did not have a review between 2006 and 2016.
They are preaching to the choir given that Pai has also been highly critical of the general conduct standard, but they are concerned about getting it off the books so it is not a tool for a different administration that might view it differently, like the Democratic Wheeler FCC that voted to impose it-Pai and his Republican colleague, Michael O'Rielly, voted against it.

In 1975, the FCC banned cross-ownership of a newspaper and broadcast station in the same market unless it granted a waiver, but allowed existing ownership structures to remain in place.
"Vin Scully tried to call the plays fast and let the crowd do the talking", Pai said. The decision could lead to a possible acquisition by Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc (SBGI.O) of Tribune Media Co (TRCO.N), some Democrats in Congress said.
