Political advertising files to be posted on FCC site


FCCThe FCC issued a notice reminding all TV broadcasters that as of 7/1, they will be required to post their political files online in a Commission-hosted database.  The Public Interest Public Airwaves Coalition has urged the Commission over the years to require this disclosure to increase transparency as required by statute.  The NAB fought the move, which included an effort to stay the requirement at the U.S. Court of Appeals in 2012.
