Faux News: GTA IV Ads Removed From Busses

So I was watching Fox News last night and I saw this story about how the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) was removing the GTA IV adds from train stations and buses. I thought this was interesting because I had noticed that there was a ton of GTA adds up on my way to work. I was going to take a picture with my phone and post it on the blog but I didn't want people thinking I was just trying to get a picture of the hot cartoon girl eating a sucker.

Click on the image to watch the video.

Frankly this is bullshit for so many reasons. Here are a few:

1. I saw ads on the sides of buses for the Rated R Movie Hitman yesterday.
2. The CTA complains about how they are so underfunded that they started to cut bus routes and wanted to hike up fairs, so don't pick and choose your advertisers if they abide by the decency regulations.
3. Right above the story on Fox's site they have alcohol advertisements.

I could go on and on about how this is stupid but I won't so, you're welcome.

I went down stairs and checked and all the ads are already off the buses and train stations. Also, go watch the video clip Eternal posted.
