Mostly, media companies will run political ads excepting in the most extreme cases, involving distasteful imagery, potential libel and so forth. None of that excuses the reported failure by a billboard firm to refuse a tastefully-designed and clearly pertinent billboard aimed at Senate candidate Roy Moore.
(Of course, this isn’t the first time Moore has been at the center of a billboard controversy, either. And be it noted: I’ve seen a specific reference as to what company has denied the billboard placement, or what its side of this might be.)
A Tweet reposted the image (seen here) and commented, “It would be a shame if god-forbid it went viral on social media and was seen by even more people than the actual billboard would have been.” Wouldn’t it, though . . .
