There is a reason ads for prostitution aren't allowed on TV. Because the trade is illegal and beyond our sensibilities.
But that doesn't stop the Times Leader. Despite a state police investigation involving human trafficking of Asian women just four years ago - the Times Leader (via the Weekender) couldn't say no to industry money. They accepted money from the Aroma Spa (see pictures) and many other sex houses and prostitution services. The back few pages of any of the Times leader's "Weekender" is smattered with ads.

A reporter told me they have taken money from various "rub and tugs," topless bars, "jack shacks," escort services, and home "service" shops. Good to the community? I think not.
This isn't the least bit funny. Where do you think the valley's heroin addicted young women show up for cash? These women are all daughters of someone. Ever think if they didn't have cash they might actually try and recover? It is called a bottom. And the Time leader has been "raising the bottom" for years. Do you think an Asian girl who cannot speak 10 words of English is not a slave to these parlors? The only separator bewteen a stripper and an escort is the level of desperation. Thanks Times Leader.
Could the Times Leader have helped these women on the fringe? Of course they could. They didn't have to allow ads for these "sex for sale" shops. But they did. Because they are arrogant. Because they are greedy. And quite honestly - because they really don't care. They aided and abetted this industry. Period.
Please show your disdain for the Times Leader with you wallet. Cancel your subscription. Buy the Citizen's Voice (who is now ahead of the Times Leader). Perhaps we could put them out of business. This would be true justice.
TIMES LEADER: LOCAL CENTER FOR SMUT AND LIBEL
George Spohr Editor Times Leader (courtesy Times Leader)
The Comments section on the Times Leader
is currently encountering these issues:
- People taking on as many as 5 aliases
- People co-committantly hijacking a profile while the other person still has the profile (and alias)
- Libel as routine as the morning sun.
- People falsely accusing people of crimes (just making stuff up)
SMUT AND LIBEL: The Times Leader comments section has become dirtier than a toilet stall wall in a train station. It is filthy, disgusting, and nobody has any idea who is who. But as long as the Times Leader gets the "views" they want... they don't care who is hurt.
Do you want a job? Everything posted is out there on the internet for an employer or potential employer to see. If you don't get a job... wouldn't you want to know if it was because libel was spread about you?
What about this nightmare? Let's pretend you name is John Doe. Currently the Times Leader has no supervision from this type of message: Post (from someone not named John Doe): John Doe posting: If I don't get my kids back I am going to blow up ZXZ Elementary School! (again, this is a fake!) Can you imagine the hell in trying to prove it wasn't you?
LIBEL The Times Leader could care less. Believe me. Many of us have tried. They claim not to be responsible for their own web page.
The Times leader makes you, the victim,
responsible for repairing the damage!!!
YOUR (INSANE) RECOURSE (straight from Times Leader)
1) First you have to know that someone libeled you. If you don't make a habit of checking the "smut" commentary section you won't likely know.
2) If you DO know it... the TL won't remove the comment
3) You must flag it
4) You then must call two other friends to flag it (3 total)
5) Even then it will not be removed immediately.
CLASS ACTION: If a company ever deserves a class action this one does. They are arrogant, unethical, and have shown they are willing to advertise for an industry that is ruining our daughters for life. If you have been a victim of libel please contact me. I am taking information from both attorneys and victims of libel. Please send me a private Facebook message at Mark M Robbins on facebook. Thank you.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR THE
NEGLIGENCE OF THE TIMES LEADER.
IT'S TIME FOR THEM TO PAY.
