Controversial ads ‘banned’ in US airports

The more you question, the more you know, — Russia Today

If youre flying within the United States rest assured — you wont be confronted with any of the uncomfortable questions raised by a recent controversial ad campaign. Major US airports have refused to display the thought-provoking, yet politically incorrect, advertisements created by foreign news source, Russia Today.

Perhaps politically incorrect is an understatement.

Its easy to see why the ads, especially those dealing with terrorism and nuclear weapons, werent allowed exposure. Too bad. Americans might have been tempted to think for themselves.

    Good point. Who, might I ask, was the banning authority and where did they receive the authority to do so? Sure looks like a Freedom of Speech issue, clear and simple.
