MISSOURI broadcasters are awaiting word from the FCC about whether they have to carry campaign commercials from a white supremacist candidate. MISSOURI State Attorney General CHRIS KOSTER, along with the MISSOURI BROADCASTERS ASSOCIATION and ENTERCOM, filed a request for a determination of the issue with the FCC. [You can view the petition here.]
ENTERCOM recently aired candidate GLENN MILLER's spots on Talk KMBZ-A and Country WDAF-F (106.5 THE WOLF), claiming that it was forced to do so under federal law, but the petition argues that MILLER is not a "bona fide" write-in candidate because he does not have an office or campaign committee and has not issued press releases, and also asks whether the campaign has officially started.
ALL ACCESS has acquired copies of the five radio spots in question. Some will be offended by the language, but you have the right to hear the commercials in question.
