Clear Channel Outdoor Removes Voter Fraud Billboards

  • October 23, 2012

Clear Channel Outdoor is taking down billboards that advocacy groups claim tried to suppress voter turnout in the Midwest, reports CNN Money. Located in minority neighborhoods in the swing states of Ohio and Wisconsin, the billboards warned that voter fraud is a felony punishable by jail time. Activists say they were placed to intimidate potential voters into staying home. A Clear Channel Outdoor spokesman said the "billboards violate our policy of not accepting anonymous political ads" and were removed.

    I'm calling BS on this. As a media buyer, I've had some run ins with Clear Channel over the creative we wanted to use for the "Bodies: The Exhibition" tour a few years back. They review all creative in advance. That they took them down after the fact claiming they just discovered the ads were anonymous is frankly crap.
