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.
