The corrupt MSM is trying en masse to discredit Craigslist. They apply the Craigslist killer to any criminal that has ever seen it, as if the list is the perpetrator of crimes. Another tactic something like the SUVs that drive themselves into accidents, but other vehicles do not. We have another MSM consolidated propaganda program coming our way. Target, isolate, and destroy tactics we know well by now.
RIP dinosaurs, your demise can’t come soon enough.
