Rich, White Oligarchs


The Daily Show is gearing up for the Republican National Convention with this new billboard near the Minneapolis St. Paul Airport. Thanks to a friend of the East-Lake.net blog for snapping the photo, and the Minnesota Independent for providing the link.

Oh man, here we go! But it’s a smart move, buying ad space outside of the airport’s domain. At least this way Northwest can’t ask CBS Outdoor to remove the ad for being “scary” and “anti-McCain,” the way it muscled Clear Channel into removing the Union of Concerned Scientists anti-nuclear advertisement. http://politicalaffairs.net/article/articleview/7283/ Really, though, I think my favorite part of that mini-saga was that the same darn ad was posted in the Denver airport, asking Obama to rethink nuclear weapons. “Was posted” as in until a few days ago, when Clear Channel pulled it too, no doubt in a spasm of trying to appear fair and balanced, since there were no complaints from the Denver-based airlines or airport officials. http://www.politicalaffairs.net/article/articleview/7299/
