The ACLU has filed suit against Metro for banning ads from several groups, including PETA and alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannapolous. Metro banned “issue-oriented ads” in 2015, in the wake of protests around an anti-Muslim ad. Other cities, including New York and San Francisco, have similar policies around transit ads. We explore what role such policies play, and how the First Amendment applies to advertising.
