Monkey wrench

Traffickers don’t care what they sell.  Guns, drugs, girls…whatever makes money.  We need to make trafficking in human beings a lot less profitable!  The Washington Post has chosen one way of throwing a monkey wrench into the machinery of trafficking.

“The Post, long criticized for running massage-parlor ads, has decided it will no longer accept them.

An internal note, e-mailed Tuesday to The Post’s advertising staff, said:

“This is to let you know that The Washington Post will no longer accept advertisements for massage parlor businesses.”

The Post had been accepting the ads if the enterprises offered proof of a valid business license from the jurisdiction where they were located. ‘If we learned that a specific business was not operating within the law, we would discontinue their advertising,’ the note said.

But in examining that policy in recent years, it continued, ‘we have seen law enforcement identify a number of such businesses as being engaged in illegal activities. We have also been directed to postings on adult websites from customers of these businesses that refer to illegal activities taking place at these establishments.'”
