CNN vs Craigslist -- continuing biased, limited reporting
[I emailed this to CNN and posted this comment in Anderson Cooper's CNN blog listing the story, reprinting it here:]
Commenting against craigslist without discussing
the argument of "freedom of speech" is truly awful.
Child porn & prostitution is not the fault of craigslist. It's more a product of class war and capitalism without concern for the lower classes of society. Furthermore, stopping craigslist from freedom of speech weakens the USA and weakens the society.
The govt should protect the children & do something more intelligent with prostitution, like many Euro countries.
The real story is that by making prostitution illegal, prostitutes go to pimps for help & protection. The govt could take care of these women & not criminalize them.
Sorry, CNN, your 'objective' reporting sucks now and it has continually sucked on so many stories (like the peace marches before Iraq war, like the 9/11 evidence of 'inside job', like always calling Iraqis and Afghanis "insurgents" instead of citizens + never giving us even ballpark casualty estimates for the countries the USA has invaded).
CNN has a lot of room for improvement.
