I am writing to let you know that I, among many others believe that
broadcasters should provide substantial free TV to candidates, in
fulfillment of their federally mandated public interest obligations.
Qualifications for free air time should be reasonable, and set low enough
to allow third party and independent candidates to have access as well.
With free access to the airwaves (and postal system), every challenger
would have a chance to run a viable campaign, especially if free time
were accompanied by spending limits to prevent multi-millionaire
candidates from dominating elections. Additionally, free time could raise
the level of debate, by requiring candidates to appear in their own ads,
for longer than the currently popular thirty second ad. Thank you for
Ryan R Sullivan
