Want to win a complicated issue in Washington? Then simplify, vilify, terrify, and make sure to take care of your supporters. Which is exactly what the powerful National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) is doing — not only in Washington, but places like Wyoming.
That’s the home state of Republican Senator John Barrasso, the latest to throw his weight behind the ‘Local Radio Freedom Act’. As a thank you, the NAB is now running this ad in the Casper Star Tribune. The Act, if passed into law, would keep the status quo, and keep traditional radio royalty-free, at least as it relates to recordings.
