Bullying Lamar

The Democratic Party is going after Lamar Outdoor Advertising for not accepting its “Shame On You, Jean Schmidt” billboards. Yes, this is the foremost concern of the out-of-power party in America: the business decision of a private company over a couple billboards in Ohio.

TAS readers may recognize this incident as similar to some Pennsylvania conservatives’ problems in getting Lamar to carry their billboards. Apparently, Lamar’s prudence runs both ways. Prudence is a key word here — true censorship, as traditionally understood, involves an outside imposition of authority. Lamar’s decision is akin to a private newspaper declining to run abortion ads. No one told them not to — it’s just the sort of business they’d rather not conduct.
