NAB Statement on Ruling Regarding Request for Stay of Online Public File Rule

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeal's rejection of NAB's stay request for implementing new online political file rules, NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton issued the following statement:

"NAB is disappointed by the panel's decision. Even though the stay request was rejected, NAB's court challenge to this new rule will continue and be debated on the merits in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. We continue to believe it is fundamentally unfair for local TV stations to be the only medium required to disclose on the Internet sensitive advertising rate information."
