Graphic abortion ad to air in Washington, D.C. race "'The station asked the FCC for permission to channel the spot into time periods when children would be less likely to be in the audience— late night. Other broadcasters joined in and asked the commission for the right to refuse the spot altogether,' Fritz e-mails. 'The FCC gave permission to permit the channeling, but Becker appealed. The D.C. Court of Appeals found for the candidate in a 1996 decision.'

The reason, per Fritz: The Communications Act requires broadcast stations to sell 'reasonable amounts' of ad time to qualified Federal candidates, and bars stations from making any changes to those spots, in what's known as the 'no censorship' provision."
