To Broadcast Television Reporters:
Below is a link to Chantilly, VA-based BIA Financial Network's 12-page analysis of a recent retransmission consent study by Arlen Communications on behalf of the American Cable Association.
The BIA analysis finds that the Arlen study is riddled with "mischaracterizations, omissions, contradictions and flawed analyses."
NAB forwarded the BIA study yesterday (Wednesday, Feb. 15) to members of the Senate Commerce Committee and the Federal Communications Commission, along with a cover letter from NAB President and CEO David K. Rehr.
