NAB Applauds Obama for Opposition to Fairness Doctrine

WASHINGTON, DC -- NAB President and CEO David Rehr sent a letter yesterday to President Barack Obama thanking him for recently reiterating opposition to the Fairness Doctrine. The White House opposition was expressed last week by spokesman Ben LaBolt.

"At a time when the challenges that face our country require vigorous debate and discussion, our nation's TV and radio broadcasters provide a rich diversity of viewpoints from all sides of the political spectrum," Rehr wrote. "We applaud you and those who join you in opposing government censorship of our airways. We stand ready to work with you to defend a fundamental freedom -- the freedom of speech."

The entire letter can be read here in PDF format.
