Unfair Media Coverage for Craig?

Jim Buckmaster, The CEO of Craiglist, was recently asked about the negative media coverage his site seems to get. His response:

We’ve been hearing increasingly from newspaper reporters who confide that they are only allowed to write negative stories about Craigslist these days, because we’re viewed as competition by their newspaper’s business managers.

Well the newspapers have plenty to write about now. It is being widely reported that a woman has been murdered after answering an ad on the site.
