Backpage.org[edit]

The Village Voice apparently is owned by the Village Voice Media that grosses over 20 million annually from its site Backpage from prostitution and the sale of mostly under age girls to its customers. Apparently it has a corner on the market share of similar web pages that include under age human sex trafficking at approximately 70%. See Kristof article in the NY Times dated March 17, 2012. Backpage pays the Village Voice to advertize these services.

I removed the following from the article as it was poorly placed, not properly cited, and not written in an encyclopedic manner. However, I do think that this is information which should be in the article, so I am hoping that someone with access to the NYT article can rework it, which is why I've copied it to the talk page. --171.66.112.234 (talk) 18:49, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Backpage really needs to be apart of The Village Voice wikipedia. Also apart of all other publications village voice owns--Evenhanded-justice (talk) 23:09, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
