Media Policy


The Campaign Legal Center shapes political broadcasting policy by promoting awareness and enforcement of political broadcasting laws through rulemaking proceedings and complaints at the Federal Communications Commission, Congressional action, litigation in the courts and public education. We support efforts to revitalize competition in our democratic process by ensuring that the public airwaves serve as a forum for open and vibrant political debate, especially among candidates, through stronger public interest obligations for digital broadcasters and efforts to make the airwaves accessible to more candidates—not just those with deep pockets or access to special interest dollars to pay for political advertising.
