BALTIMORE, MD (WEAA) — The Baltimore City State's Attorney's Office has filed a formal complaint with the Federal Communications Commission against a local news station.

The state’s attorney’s office is requesting an investigation into FOX 45’s broadcasting and media practices, specifically content released to the public regarding State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby and her family. 

 

Nick Mosby, Marilyn’s husband and Baltimore City Council President says: 

 

Marilyn and I, as elected officials, decided to give up immunity and I think that we’ve always been strong voices for certain issues that don’t necessarily get talked about… we understand and know that we become targets kind of because of that. But when you encroach on like, the safety of my family, when you encroach on the safety of my children the things that we’ve had to experience and endure for the past six years— you know that’s where ultimately, enough is enough. So when you ask me what’s my ultimate goal —as a husband, as a father– to protect my wife and my children.”

 

Nick Mosby and Farajii Muhammad also discuss Baltimore’s budget plan, legislative oversight and the “Baltimore Business Inclusion and Empowerment Legislative Package” which offers local companies a better chance at competing for city contracts.
