OK, now for a stupid question.  What the heck does an FCC red flag mean?  I 
mean, I've heard of this occurence happening a number of times in the recent 
past, and absolutely nothing ever occured but the stations being transferred 
to the new owner.  IF this is the case, why do they even bother red flagging 
sales like this?

Albany Broadcasting owns WJJR?  When did this happen?
