Newmark Nervous

After being humiliated on CNN a couple weeks ago, Craig Newmark, owner of Craigslist, has rolled out yet another liberal apologist for his sex trafficking enterprise. Last week, Craigslist apologist Scott James, a reporter at the Bay Citizen news, wrote a dismal example of unethical journalism to promote a personal agenda on the topic. Today, the liberal flagship Mother Jones magazine continues in the same vein.

Newmark must be very nervous.

Let the Sunshine

Peace and Freedom Party plans a protest tomorrow at the Auberge du Soleil, US Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's Napa County hotel. Labor organizers note that the hotel, restaurant chain, and winery owned by Pelosi is 100% non-union, and benefits from corrupt deals the lawmaker made through her role in Congress.

World's Oldest Oppression

After a virtual Bay Area media blackout of the protest by 75 human rights organizations against Craigslist a month ago, the Bay Citizen has questionably covered the controversy surrounding online sex trafficking. Given that San Francisco-based Craigslist is a multi-billion dollar business, it is not surprising that corporate media is reluctant to cover a conflict that involves collusion between legitimate business and organized crime, but the fact that this industry is one of the most violent on the planet, those connections cannot long remain hidden.

The vast profits made through this virtual venue for what amounts to slave auctions may be new, but the horrors of the world's oldest oppression are not.

Update: By excluding information that doesn't fit with his personal bias, reporter Scott James persists in displaying his arrogance and ignorance.
