A lot of people don’t seem to realize that there’s an official craigslist blog where you can find responses to the various folks attacking or criticizing us in the media–often without conducting basic background research. Some people thing that craigslist is “killing newspapers” but the hack writing jobs published by some of them certainly can’t be helping their future either.
That aside, the blog is a good place to look for our side of the story. Jim has been doing a great job of responding to some of the more outrageous critics and giving some useful background information what we’ve done over the years. It’s sad but hardly surprising that the so-called journalists (yes, the sames ones who don’t do the basic research) don’t bother to mention or *gasp* link to the blog in their pieces.
Oh, well. This is hardly the first time we’ve seen Old Media resisting change.
