Obama in Ad Hits Times Square -- But Newspapers Turn It Down
Fascinating piece just up at NYT on the Weatherproof clothing company putting up billboard with Obama in one of its winter coats (in China). White House not pleased and several newspapers have turned down ad with same image -- an AP photo. Don't miss it here.
