MTA may stop allowing political ads on subways, buses
by Rebecca Harshbarger
The MTA is considering a ban on political or opinion ads, which bring in less revenue and create costly legal issues, The Post has learned.
A Manhattan federal judge ruled Tuesday that the authority can't block a political activist from running ads on city buses that read "Killing Jews is Worship that draws us close to Allah."
The group American Freedom Defense Initiative paid the MTA $100,000 last year to plaster six of its controversial ads in the subway and on buses. The MTA rejected one, but the federal judge ultimately ruled that New Yorkers would not be incited to violence by the ad.
