              Amendment No. 3 to Schedule 13D filed April 1, 2020
              Amendment No. 4 to Schedule 13D filed April 3, 2020
              Response dated April 10, 2020
              Filed by Standard General L.P., et al.
              File No. 005-19132

Dear Mr. de Wied:

     We have reviewed your response dated April 10, 2020, and have the
following additional

Amendments No. 3 and 4 to Schedule 13D

1. We note your response to prior comment 1 but disagree with your analysis.
Given that you
   retained the right to vote the 5,000,000 shares sold between March 25 and
March 31, 2020 at
   the annual meeting, we continue to believe that you were required to amend
your Schedule
   13D to report beneficial ownership over both the swap shares and the shares
sold. Refer to
   Rule 13d-3(a)(1).

2. Given our conclusion that the series of transactions referenced in our
comment above
   resulted in Standard General becoming a beneficial owner of greater than 10%
of the
   Company's common stock on March 25, 2020, please tell us how you plan to
comply with
   Section 16 of the Exchange Act and update your Section 16(a) filings as
required. Refer to
   Rule 16a-3. In this respect, we note that you cite your April 2 purchase of
shares in your
   Form 3 filed April 7, 2020, rather than the March 25 transactions. We
further note that you
   have not filed any Forms 4.
