Alan Dershowitz Calls Amended M.T.A. Advertising Rules "Plain Dumb" and "Unconstitutional"
In an interview with The Algemeiner, Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz slammed new approved advertising guidelines announced by the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority, calling them "Plain Dumb" and "Unconstitutional."
The new rules allow the M.T.A. to ban ads that it "reasonably foresees would imminently incite or provoke violence or other immediate breach of the peace."
"A. it's clearly unconstitutional" he said, and "b. it incentivizes people to engage in violence. What it says to people, is that if they don't like ads, just engage in violence and then we'll take the ads down."
