MEDIA: Senate resolution tells Village Voice to take down ‘adult entertainment’ section.

Lawmakers said that website, Backpage.com, ends up promoting child sex trafficking in the United States. . . .

“As news reports of pimps and traffickers using Backpage.com to advertise sexual services by minors continue to increase, we cannot leave our children defenseless,” Kirk said. “The profit-first mentality at Village Voice Media, which prioritizes the rights of pimps, not children, must end.”

Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) co-sponsored the measure.

Won’t they think of the children?
