[Letter from Mario Marcel Salas to Complaints Division of the FCC - April 23, 1979]

Description: Letter from Mario Marcel Salas, president of the Black Coalition on Mass Media, to the complaints and compliance division of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It seems that, after buying a political advertisement to air on KAPE radio, the BCMM's ad was pulled from the air by the station when an official from the FCC ruled it to be a personal attack. The letter Mr. Salas sends is to inquire about the validity of the ruling, if such a ruling even occurred.
