Other information:

AK Media/NW, a division of The Ackerley Group, leases billboard space to socially irresponsible Corporations. According to the Seattle P-I (8 July 1997), about 165 of AK Media's 1,100 billboards in King County contain ads for tobacco products. In a 7 July 1997 agreement with the King Co. (WA) Board of Health, AK Media/NW announced that they will stop accepting cigarette and other tobacco ads in King Co. after 1 January 1998.


For Seattle folks, The Stranger ran an article (with pictures) "When Billboads go Bad" (26 June 1997), by Wm. Steven Humphrey about the vandalizing of Seattle's billboards.


The Washington Free Press ran an excellent article on the negative impacts of advertising:
