FCC Requires Broadcasters to Post Political Ad Info

Beginning in July, the Federal Communications Commission will require all broadcasters to post information about the political television advertisements they sell online at a FCC-hosted database. Major broadcasters, including ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC have been required to provide the information since 2012. Smaller broadcasters had been required to make the information available, but had been permitted to keep the files at their own facilities.
