Billboard as a medium of protest
Many call it ‘power of billboard’. A billboard installed next to the building of The New York Times in Manhattan criticises the newspaper’s illhandling against its senior editor Jill Abramson who was suspended recently under a controversial manner. The texts on the giant display reading ‘Unfair to Jill Abramson? Definitely Unfair to Israel’ defended the ousted top editor of the paper as well as Israel. Sponsored by Boston-based media watchdog CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America), the billboard delivered an appealing message to every passersby around.
