News Tribune Admonishes Tacoma City Council to: 1) Ban Digital Billboards, 2) Remove Non-Complying Billboard, 3) Refuse to "cave" to Clear Channel
Even so, Clear Channel seems to view the citys law as little more than an opening offer. It sued in 2007 to overturn the citys rules. Now its proposing an agreement that is a coup dressed in compromise.The settlement would not only leave the vast majority of the companys most obtrusive and ill-placed billboards standing, but also secure Clear Channels ability to introduce new potential eyesores in the form of digital billboards.

|The Tribune editorial seems to make reference to Kevin's blighted billboard posts:|
Come get your 193 illegal billboards and cancel any plans to erect digital signs within city limits.
