Controversial Ads in Pennsylvania
Free speech is an important right, but are there limits? Should there be limits? Can a billboard ad be so controversial or offensive that it should be rejected?
I’m about to show you an ad that was submitted to be displayed on buses in the County of Lackawanna Transit System. It was rejected based on the advertising policy that they do not run ads “which could be deemed controversial or otherwise spark public debate.”
It really isn’t anything that’s being said, is it. They’re offended that we even exist.
