FCC Seeks Comments On ‘LIFO’ Political Ads

The FCC’s Media Bureau issued a Public Notice Thursday seeking comment on a petition for declaratory ruling urging the commission to prohibit stations’ use of the Last-In-First-Out (LIFO) method of selling preemptible advertising time to political candidates or, if not prohibited, to require that stations using the LIFO method always give political candidates preemption priority over commercial advertisers.
