ABC, CBS, and NBC assert that their coverage of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions was specifically exempt pursuant to Section 315(a)(4) of the Communications Act.
However, Perot maintains that the fact that the networks chose to cover only the Democratic and Republican conventions, and not that of the Reform Parties, suggests that they are "showing favoritism" towards the major party candidates.
Perot argues that, while coverage of political conventions is normally exempt from equal opportunities pursuant to Section 315(a)(4), the events surrounding the 1996 conventions of both parties were "exceptional," and that as a result, the news exemption should not apply.

 AEGiS-LT: White House AIDS Activist Falls Into Political Exile Health: Once a symbol of change, Bob Hattoy has been pushed aside. He remains outspoken, yet loyal to Clinton.
It shows two people with AIDS standing together at the podium of the 1992 Democratic National Convention in New York--Elizabeth Glaser in a smart black suit and pearls, and Bob Hattoy, requiring none of the three baseball caps he packed in case the chemotherapy made his hair fall out.
