The media has neglected the most flagrant violation of the equal time broadcast requirement for presidential candidates under section 315 (a) of the Communications Act.

On October 9, 2020, radio opinion host Rush Limbaugh conducted a 2-hour “radio rally” for Donald Trump  to openly advance his 2020 presidential political campaign.  Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins demanded equal time on Limbaugh’s show under section 315 (a) to promote his presidential campaign. Limbaugh ignored him.  Hawkins then filed a FCC complaint, which has idled in the horse latitudes. The media should be chided for ignoring, thus far, this combination of lawlessness by Trump/Limbaugh and the FCC’s refusal to act.
