NJ Tech Edge: BROADCASTERS BACK AD DISCLOSURE FOR CABLE

NJ links out to the FCC comments, “In the Matter of Expansion of Online Public File Requirements”

BROADCASTERS BACK AD DISCLOSURE FOR CABLE: The National Association of Broadcasters had sued the FCC (unsuccessfully) to try to stop political ad disclosure requirements for TV stations. But now that the agency is eyeing the same requirements for cable and satellite providers, the broadcasters are fully on board.

“There is no reasoned basis for treating the public/political files of cable and [satellite] providers differently,” NAB writes in the filing.
