Description

What constitutes a "legally qualified" political candidate, "equal time," and "use" of broadcast facilities under the Federal Communication Commission provisions requiring equal access to the airways for political candidates? Also: Can murder defendants such as Troy Davis, Trayvon Martin, Casey Anthony and Jody Arias receive fair trials given the high-voltage national spotlight? How do courts define "massive, pervasive and prejudicial publicity" that would prevent a fair trial? Also: How can journalists avoid legal liabilities when going undercover to seek information in the public interest?
