Atlas: NEW YORK (WPIX) – In a new development, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) has decided to allow controversial advertisements arguing against the proposed construction of a mosque to appear on the side of New York City buses.
The MTA released the following Monday, “While the MTA does not endorse the views expressed in this or other ads that appear on the transit system, the advertisement purchased by a group opposing a planned mosque near the World Trade Center was accepted today after its review under MTA’s advertising guidelines and governing legal standards.”
The anti-mosque ad is a powerful ad with images evoking 9/11 designed by a group which strongly opposes the construction of what’s being called the “Ground Zero Mosque”. The controversial ad was designed, paid for, and presented to the MTA a month ago, but the MTA refused to approve the campaign, so the ad’s sponsors decided to bring the fight to court.
