A statement from the letter peruses:

“While one can’t discount control in the basic spot advertise, we trust that, because of the broadened proprietorship and volume of exchanging, the market does not have major, basic vulnerabilities. Hence, the Commission’s expanded requirement and administrative activities can diminish the quantity of awful performing artists in a fundamentally stable market.”
