The “poo flags” article below tipped me off to this story: “Clear Channel cedes responsibility for ‘Bush: Our leader’ billboard to local market” (source: “The Blue Lemur”). We can thank “our” media for this being a “story”, because:
The Orlando Associated Press bureau said they had seen at least one sign but didn’t plan a story. They suggested that the signs would only become a story were there a public response to the billboards, and that the county in which they were situated would probably meet the signs with “a warm response.”
How nice. So, if I pay for a giant billboard in Santa Cruz with a picture of Dubya, saying, “Commander in Thief” (or something equally pithy), it isn’t newsworthy, because the people in Santa Cruz county would probably meet the signs with a “warm response”?
