Pundits TUCKER CARLSON and PAUL BEGALA are featured in a new PSA campaign by the NAB EDUCATION FOUNDATION for NATIONAL FREEDOM OF SPEECH WEEK. MSNBC host CARLSON and CNN analyst BEGALA appear in the PSAs as representatives of both ends of the political spectrum, explaining how freedom of speech protects all viewpoints. Eight other PSAs are available for TV and radio in addition to the CARLSON-BEGALA versions. The PSAs are designed to be run this week (10/15-19).
"Freedom of speech is fundamental to American democracy and a gift from our Founding Fathers," said NAB President and CEO DAVID K. REHR. "It is the bedrock of broadcasting and I urge local stations to remind all Americans of the importance of Freedom of Speech by airing these PSAs."
