Craigslist Censors Adult Services Section


"We work with law enforcement to bring to justice any criminals foolish enough to incriminate themselves by misusing our site, and want to make sure everything possible has been done in your cases," Buckmaster wrote. "Even politicians looking to advance their careers by publicly criticizing us grudgingly admit (when pressed) that we have made giant strides in fighting trafficking and child exploitation."

Buckmaster entered a war or words with the media after CNN's Amber Lyon confronted Newmark, the site's namesake, about the controversy after he made a speech about supporting veterans.

"[Lyon] set CNN's ethical code aside, sidestepped company channels in favor of ambushing our semi-retired founder, complete with a misleading 'set up' for your surprise questions," Buckmaster wrote on Craigslist's blog.
