Letters from Alaska

A campaign and a national party are exchanging letters with television stations over the contents of advertising. Nothing new for this time of year.

Sen. Ted Stevens’ re-election campaign called on Alaska radio and television stations to stop showing a pair of political commercials attacking the longtime Republican Senator this week.

The Stevens campaign spent all day Thursday arguing the ads are deceptive, while a national Democratic group battled to keep the commercials on the air.
Except for a collection of Fairbanks radio stations that temporarily pulled the ads, most of the broadcasters had refused to remove them as of Thursday night.

Ads have been “pulled” before.
