Congressmen urge liquor ad inquiry

Published on .

U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy (D., Mass.) and 24 other members of Congress urged new Federal Communications Commission Chairman William Kennard to start an official inquiry into liquor advertising. In a letter, the legislators said they were "concerned that left unchecked, our nation's airwaves will become flooded with additional messages that drown our children in images of academic and athletic success to be gained by drinking liquor." Mr. Kennard has said he favors an inquiry but no action is ecpected this year.
