Public Outrage Kills ‘L.A., Mexico’ Sign, May 3

Citing “community feedback,” the advertising company responsible for a Los Angeles area billboard that places L.A. in Mexico has announced it will revise the ad by Friday.

As WorldNetDaily reported, a billboard ad for KRCA, channel 62, a Spanish-language news station, has the “CA” abbreviation after “Los Angeles” crossed out and the word “Mexico” added in its place in bold red letters.



William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration, is declaring victory after receiving an e-mail from Clear Channel. The note said:

“In response to community feedback, Clear Channel Outdoor spoke with the local advertiser and reached agreement on revised ad copy. That copy is expected to be posted by 5/6/05. Anyone seeking further comment is invited to contact the TV station directly. Channel 62 phone 818-563-5722.”

A poster on the group’s message board referred to Clear Channel’s use of words in the e-mail, saying, “Community feedback? Ha! What a PC statement! More like community OUTRAGE.”
