The Los Angeles Times reported in print on the electronic ads zooming past subway riders (they've been operating for over a week now). Red Line passengers traveling between NoHo and Downtown are now privy to Target ads in addition to commercials for the Warner Bros. bomb, Speed Racer. The spots help bring in millions of dollars in ad revenue to Metro. Writer Steve Hymon finds a hater: "If the people in the city decide 'yes' that's OK [to have the ads]," says well-known activist Dennis Hathaway of the Coalition to Ban Billboard Blight, "I'll accept that and probably move somewhere else." That's new: decamping LA because of subway ads. [LA Times]
