New stimulus package includes broadcast PPP—but it’s DOA.

The latest COVID-19 relief measure narrowly passed the House and faces a steep uphill battle in the Senate, where the Majority Leader has vowed to block what he calls “an 1800-page seasonal catalog of left-wing oddities.” The good news is that the bill does include language that covers eligibility of local news media for the Paycheck Protection Program. The bad news is, even if it passes the Senate, the president has vowed to veto it.
