Perot wants time

Published on .

Ross Perot's 45-page complaint filed with the Federal Communications Commission Wednesday includes some previously unrevealed details of his problems buying time from the TV networks for his presidential campaign. According to the complaint, the networks have been much more reluctant to sell TV time then they were in 1992. CBS refused to sell the campaign any half-hours of prime time between Sept. 15 and Oct. 27, Fox's only offer was a half-hour in optional programming in case no World Series game was needed; NBC offered one half-hour prior to election eve and ABC offered three half-hours before election eve. The complaint asks the FCC to force the networks to sell him time.
