Stop Dishonest Political Ads
Broadcasters are raking in billions of dollars from political ads and way too many of these ads are dishonest. To make matters worse, some broadcasters are even cutting time out of newscasts to air MORE of these ads.1
Stations are legally obligated to run ads from candidates regardless of whether those ads are true or not. But broadcasters can reject deceptive ads from Super PACs and other outside groups.
Tell your local TV stations: Step up and stop airing misleading third-party ads.
We’ll deliver your message to the news directors of the ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC affiliates in the top 50 media markets.
Election Day is just around the corner and local stations are getting richer by the minute. We must hold broadcasters accountable for airing ads that mislead voters.
