"CNN's Amber Lyon probes allegations that Craigslist is not doing what it can to combat child sex trafficking."

Watch the whole thing to fully appreciate the stupendous awkward silence at 3:38, and again at 4:25.

Craig Newmark, New Jersey Jew, just had his ass handed to him by Amber Lyon.

Yes, once in a while we are enjoying us some refreshing schadenfreude.
And no, we don't feel guilty about it either.

And, yes, silence is golden.

it was great how he tried to throw it back on her and she didn't let him, and he had to STFU again.

Priceless. First of many more I hope.

I've never been to Craigslist, but I did see that ballsy lady reporter ask that slimebag Newmark questions he couldn't or wouldn't answer.

Here's the kicker: Some SOB managed to get hold of my credit card number and used it to try and set up a 'romantic' liasion with some hooker type on Craigslist.

My credit card company thought it was out of character, so they contacted me and asked if I had made that purchase.

After my jaw dropped to my chest, then back up, I told them it WAS NOT me and to cancel the charge.

They did that and also voided my credit card, so now I have to wait for a new one, but at least some snake in the grass won't be using my money to get his rocks off.

comforting huh? i wonder how your card number got into the wrong hands.

Why isn't our cagey media asking the obvious questions? Craigslist needs a place for these creeps to go so that they don't infect other areas of the site, so I can see their logic in providing it.

Why aren't the local, state and federal police organizations using this honeypot as a standard operating procedure?

There is no better way to deal with people who have no self control.

well you're absolutely right. there's no reason that law enforcement couldn't have done something about it even without craig's help. maybe that's why the cop's ears were flaming red.

legal mumbo jumbo
