Clear Channel owns your eyeballs

Does Clear Channel have to own every wall in town?
Seems like this outdoor billboard company likes to throw its weight and highly paid attorneys around.

What's next?

Here in Portland, they may go after murals and artists-who-paint-walls next. Stay tuned!!

And I'm sick of them foisting their corporate propaganda onto every inch of our otherwise beautiful Portland landscape. WE own the horizon, not Corporate America (of which Clear Channel is a major enabler.) What they're doing is corporate vandalism, and I urge everyone to contact their city commissioner and Mayor Potter to try to bring this commercialist blight under control. But you know what they say: One person's billboard is another person's canvas.
