Fcc Turns Away Challenge By Schwarzenegger Opponent
The FCC on Thursday ruled that Jay Leno's recent interview with Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger was a legitimate news interview and that NBC was therefore not required to offer equal to time to Phil Angelides, his Democratic opponent in next week's gubernatorial election. In response, a spokesman for Angelides said, "We are disappointed but not surprised that the Bush-controlled FCC has made a political decision over the use of our public airwaves." Currently three Republicans and two Democrats sit on the commission.
