FCC splits on liquor ads

Published on .

Federal Communications Commission members, in a letter to U.S. Rep. John Dingell, (D.,Mich.), split on FCC's authority to regulate TV and radio liquor ads. FCC Chairman Reed Hundt contended FCC is not precluded from acting; Commissioner Susan Hess said FCC had the right to look, but was less certain about its ability to act. Commissioners James Quello and Rachelle Chong said the agency has no authority over broadcast liquor ads.
