Money media Elections

Presented by Free Press

Free Press fought in the field, at the FCC and in court to get broadcasters to post their political files online. These files contain crucial information about who’s paying to sway our vote.

We achieved a big victory when the FCC voted to require online posting — but the ruling applies immediately only to the top media markets. So Free Press is partnering with the Sunlight Foundation and the New America Foundation to collect the files from broadcast stations nationwide.
