Stop the presses and call the Pulitzer committee. The Denver Post has an amazing scoop. Are you sitting down? There's naughty stuff on the Internet. Here's Michael Booth's breathless report:
The dirty little secret about the wildly popular Craigslist is that one click away from its home page are some raunchy and often deeply offensive forums inviting blatant racism, rants and sexual kinks.Yes, he's serious. Now, I realize we all have gaps in our knowledge. But what's so utterly confounding here, isn't that Booth doesn't know something that most of us have know for at least a decade, but that one or more editors at the Post read Booth's article and felt it was worth putting in a newspaper (and posted under "Breaking News" on denverpost.com). Guys, if you're wondering why an ever-growing number of people find newspapers increasingly irrelevant, I'd say look no further than articles like this.
