Full Story

Times are tough for Newspapers.

Advertising is on the decline.

However, as I drive around Los Angeles, I can't help but notice the enormous amount of advertising that is put up on Public Property.

Since when is the business of government to compete with media outlets for advertising revenue?

So, I have to ask myself. Is this a grand plan to get rid of accountability once and for all in the government?

The Los Angeles MTA ( is one of the worst cuprits. It looks like the subway system is owned and operated by AT&T these days.

I remember the old days when I would see the ads for movies in the paper. In case you haven't heard, Los Angeles is next to Hollywood so there are lots of advertising dollars for movies. And little of the money makes its way to the papers anymore. It is all on buses.

Rocky Delgadillo is a very special agent in this issue. As the city of Los Angeles has been dealing with illegal billboards all over the city....or haven't been dealing with illegal billboards all over the city. As the City Attny....his role in allowing the illegal creation of advertising outlets should be scrutinized.

But then again, if the papers are out of business. Who will pursue scrutiny of government?

Support Freedom. Buy a paper.
