The Campaign Media Guide

  • July 15, 2004
In this era of saturation political advertising, electoral success often turns on the candidate's ability to get his or her campaign message to voters. To that end, The Campaign Media Guide offers practical application of the rules governing political speech on radio, broadcast television, cable, and direct broadcast satellite for the federal elections. It provides an overview of the rights and obligations of candidates and broadcasters, and guidelines on how to monitor and affect political discourse. The Guide also provides case studies of persons seeking remedies for denial of their rights as illustrations of how to do the same.
