It is true. In New York, one may articulate any idea whatsoever - as long as that idea parallels popular opinion. Stray too far from generally accepted wisdom, though, and you are asking for trouble.&quot; </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-nodereference field-field-source"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="field-label-inline-first"> By</div> <a href="/author/clay-waters">Clay Waters</a> </div> </div> </div> Clyde Haberman took on the hypocrisy of New York City's selective celebration of free speech in his Tuesday "NYC" column, "<a target="" href="http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/01/nyregion/01nyc.html?ref=clydehaberman">Where Freedom of Expression Runs Headlong Into the Impulse to Censor</a>."<br /><br />A Texas group put up a pro-life billboard with a provocative message showing a black girl under the words "The most dangerous place for an African American is in the womb." The billboard was taken down a week later after pressure was applied by influential city officials. <br /><p><a href="http://mrc.org/articles/haberman-attacks-nycs-free-speech-hypocrisy-removal-pro-life-billboard" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Articles TimesWatch AbortionBillboards ClydeHaberman Columns liberalmediabias NewYorkCity NewYorkTimes NewYorkTimesbias TimesWatch Tue, 01 Mar 2011 17:47:00 +0000 admin 175 at http://mrc.org
