Ninth Circuit Upholds Federal Law that Prevents Public Broadcast Stations from Selling Ads

Congress has long made it illegal for public broadcasting stations to sell advertising. On December 2, an en banc panel of the Ninth Circuit overruled a 3-judge panel of the Ninth Circuit, and upheld the federal law. The case had been brought by a public television station that wants to sell advertising, including issue advertising and also advertising by candidates. Here is the opinion. Thanks to Rick Hasen for this news.

    A rather blatant subversion of the 1st Amdt based on CONTENT ??? Duh.

    Thus – one more chance for SCOTUS to slam the *politically correct* robot party hacks of the 9th Circuit.
