Billboard advertiser blames politicians for billboards


JM, Street Level No. 19, 9.13.07

In yet another circus of situational ethics downtown, the Times also editorializes about billboard blight this morning, without really mentioning either billboard prohibitionist Dennis Hathaway or its own predisposition for advertising on big ol' signs. And again, after decades of billboard advertising, the former fishwrap of record points the finger at someone else.

A reader notes that "The LA Times is on a crusade to increase their advertising presence at the expense of the smaller outdoor advertising companies..."

You may recall that the Times itself began advertising on Clear Channel digital billboards in March of last year.
