Rehr Thanks Obama for LaBolt’s Statement on Fairness Doctrine

'We applaud you and those who join you in opposing government censorship of our airways'

NAB likes what it hears from the White House on the topic of the Fairness Doctrine.

David Rehr, its president/CEO, sent a letter to the president saying thanks for a recent statement by spokesman Ben LaBolt.

Rehr wrote: “The nation’s broadcasters appreciate your support of fundamental First Amendment principles.”

NAB released a copy of the letter.

For another view of the Fairness Doctrine, here’s a commentary this week in the Philadelphia Inquirer from Tim Giago, founder and president of the Native American Journalists Association.
