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.
