The Vote No on V group, which is working to defeat the anti-transparency measure Amendment V, (which would hide party labels on the ballot, and disenfranchise independent and third party candidates from appearing on the general election ballot) sent a letter yesterday to KSOO Radio and Townsquare Media over all the free advertising that Amendment V spokesman & radio announcer Rick Knobe has been giving himself:
Now, Will tells me that he was e-mailed in response that they would accommodate the formal request. But that also begs the question HOW they’re going to accommodate it.
Are they going to give him a minute for minute opportunity for rebuttal/promotion? That might add up to a lot of time. Are they going to have Knobe, the spokesman for his opponents, interview him? That wouldn’t really be anything resembling equal time.
There’s a lot up in the air with KSOO’s begrudging “yeah, ok” response.
