NAB President and CEO DAVID K. REHR sent a letter to President OBAMA thanking him for his recently reiterated opposition to reimposition of the "Fairness Doctrine."
In the letter, REHR said, "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. 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."
