"Clear Channel Communications Inc. hopes to defuse a dispute over a Times Square antiwar billboard picturing a lighted bomb by finding it another spot, a lawyer for the media giant said on Tuesday.
Clear Channel was sued on Monday by public interest group Project Billboard, which has a $368,000 contract for the sign on the Marriott Marquis Hotel. However, a lawyer for Clear Channel told a hearing on Tuesday it had to reject the display because Marriott prohibits political advertising on its billboard."
"Project Billboard said it had offered to substitute the image of a dove for the bomb. Duffy said the hotel, which holds the right to clear ads in its contract with Clear Channel, rejected the sign either way."
