Fcc campaign ads

  • The proposed rule would require broadcast stations to make their political files available on the FCCs website. These files, which include considerable information on campaign ads, are currently stored locally in paper form.

  • By FCC regulation, television stations have to sell advertising But it will also lead to a more scattershot approach. Devine pointed out that campaign ads normally "aggregate around news, early day shows, [and the] fringe of primetime.
