TSA to allow advertising at security checkpoints

When the U.S. government sells out, it literally sells out. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced that it’s launching a one-year pilot program to test the effectiveness of commercial advertising at airport security checkpoints.

TSA spokesperson Amy Kudwa says, “TSA plans to launch a one-year pilot program where airport operators may enter into an agreement with vendors, who will provide divestiture bins, divestiture and composure tables, and metal-free bin return carts at no cost to TSA. In return for the equipment, TSA will allow airport operator-approved advertisements to be displayed on the bottom of the inside of the bins.”

Advertising at passenger screening checkpoints. Is it just me, or does the world just get more ridiculous every day?
