Arriving about two years late to the table, the New York Times has discovered that prostitutes advertise on Craigslist. The hook this time around is a recent Craigslist sting that was carried out by the Nassau County Police Department. Thankfully, the NCPD knows how to give a good sound bite:
“Craigslist has become the high-tech 42nd Street, where much of the solicitation takes place now,” said Richard McGuire, Nassau’s assistant chief of detectives. “Technology has worked its way into every profession, including the oldest.”
Yet, rather than being about Nassau County’s sting operation, the piece focuses on prostitution in the five boroughs and out of state. Hell, even Tracy Quan is bought in for a quote. Coming up next from the New York Times: Hard-hitting exposes on spammers who advertise Cialis via e-mail and the growing danger of online gambling. It’s yesterday… today.
