Broadcasting & Cable;6/23/2003, Vol. 133 Issue 25, p36

Sticking to the principle will not always be possible and it means NAB will have to sit out some big issues. The networks do encroach on the programming prerogatives of their affiliates and under the newly liberalized rules, the networks pretty much have the right of first refusal to any network-affiliate station that comes on the market.
