TV Blackouts Reconfirm Need for Free Market Regulatory Reform

For over two weeks now, failed retransmission negotiations between AT&T and Nexstar Media Group have deprived customers across the United States of 120 Nexstar television stations in 97 markets.

That's unfortunately something to which far too many Americans have become accustomed recently, as 2019 has already witnessed more TV blackouts than any year in history.  And the news only gets worse:  CBS is now warning that stations in numerous major markets, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas and others, could be blacked out as this week concludes.

Center for Individual Freedom Launches Public Education Effort in Mississippi Print
Tuesday, July 02 2019

ALEXANDRIA, VA - The Center for Individual Freedom (“CFIF”) this week launched a public education effort in Mississippi in support of national border security and other law enforcement and crime-related issues in the state.

The effort, which includes a radio ad, is launched at a time when far too many public officials across the country are working to thwart law enforcement, including efforts by President Trump and others to secure the border amid a growing crisis. 

Specifically, CFIF is urging Mississippians to contact State Representative Mark Baker and tell him to keep fighting to protect Mississippi families on these issues.

Representative Baker is a former prosecutor and conservative judge who understands the important role of strong law enforcement, supports no-nonsense crime policies, and is standing with President Trump on securing the border.

UPDATE:  July 19, 2019

ATTORNEYS GENERAL MUST STEP UP AND WORK WITH THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO HELP FIX BORDER CRISIS

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Center for Individual Freedom ("CFIF") has released a new radio ad in Mississippi encouraging grassroots action to urge the state Attorney General's office to get back to fighting crime and to work with the Trump administration to help fix the ongoing illegal immigration crisis.

The radio ad builds on CFIF's ongoing public education effort designed to create a grassroots groundswell in Mississippi to encourage state elected officials to push the AG's office to focus more on fighting real crime both by aggressively tackling its crime-fighting obligations in the state and also by partnering with the federal government on issues like illegal immigration.
