BOSTON TRANSIT PUTS HOLD ON METRO

By: Lucia Moses

Litter, Editorial Concerns Cited


Massachusetts’ transportation secretary said there is no way the
state would partner with Metro International in distributing a
new version of its free daily in the Boston mass-transit system,
mainly because of litter and editorial concerns, a spokesman
said.

“Worst-case scenario was, they come out with an editorial
endorsing legalizing marijuana,” the spokesman said. “We don’t
want a message that we can’t control.”

In the real world, the Metro model does not include editorials.
