/// Groups Urge Court: Don’t Cave In On Political Disclosure Online

June 21, 2012  |  Media Week

A half dozen public interest groups that advocated for the Federal Communications Commission's new rule to move TV station political files online , petitioned the Court to defend the rules in the case brought in May by the National Association of Broadcasters. The motion to intervene was filed Wednesday by Free Press and five other organizations in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia. The groups Free Press, Benton Foundation, Common Cause, Campaign Legal Center, New America Foundation, and the Office of Communication, Inc. of the United Church of Christ, played a big part in pushing the FCC to adopt the rule and feel they have a lot of skin in the game to make sure it's not overturned.
