Whoa, whoa, whoa...

The point of my post was that, so far as the original story was written, it looked like CBS affiliates were being ordered to essentially give a guy free advertising time, which I thought to be unfair. I even made a point of saying that the source was from Drudge... and I thought that I implied that I wasn't sure if it was verified yet.

Now, look, I'd be more than happy to hear how it's a-ok and usual for affiliates to be told to air free advertising time by their networks. I haven't seen that explained, though... when I looked up the definition of 'must carry' I didn't see anything that could excuse this, but, again, I'm not an expert and so am open to hearing about how this book premotion is covered by a legitimate use of 'must carry'.

For the record, if a retired Republican was selling a book and affiliates were ordered to carry a free promo I'd be equally worried.

I understood what you were posting and was not confused as to who said what.............and even putting all the legal mombo jumbo aside...........if I was the clear channel exec.....I'd send the same memo...........those folks are in the money making business; and they make money by selling ad space with the price being determined by ratings...............If you have a Clinton on a national hookup for a 1 hour Q&A open to the whole USA's common folks....................

What do you tell the affiliates?

Clinton Book or The Lawrence Welk Top-Twenty…………………your choice.

Honest. There are not that many conspiracies or golems out to do in the RW or promote the Wacko’s of the Left…………..of which there are none left. But that’s another string
