Village Voice Media dumps papers to keep sex ads

• By Arturo Garcia Raw Story

Village Voice Media agreed Sunday to sell New York’s Village Voice alternative weekly and its 12 affiliated publications, while keeping a classified ads website criticized for hosting ads for prostitution and sex trafficking.

According to Forbes, the 13 publications, which include Phoenix’s New Times and California’s L.A. Weekly, among others, will now be owned by Voice Media Group, headed by former Voice chief operating officer Scott Tobias.

“This is a grassroots buyout,” Tobias told Ad Age. “We’re excited to continue to focus on professional, curated, hard-hitting journalism, comprehensive entertainment coverage and a continued push to digital.”

A b.s. moralistic headline attached to this story.   The sex ads amount to all of 7% of the total volume of very legitimate, public ads found at this site.
