Cause of Action has joined an amicus brief filed by the Southeastern Legal Foundation in the case of Minority TV v. FCC calling on the Supreme Court hear a challenge to the rule that political speech on broadcast television deserves less Constitutional protection than political speech in other media.

In McCutcheon v. FEC, the Supreme Court specifically recognized Cause of Action’s unique and important perspective regarding the critical relationship between political transparency and robust free speech.  Here, Cause of Action strongly believes that the Constitution, and the public interest in good government, both require that political speech, regardless of the medium, should always be given the highest level of First Amendment protection.   Therefore, it has asked the Court to take this case.
