Craigslist has been charged for posting discriminatory ads in Chicago
Craigslist network is providing its best services to the customers but sometime has been facing objectionable situation. Chicago Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights has claimed that craigslist is violating the federal fair-housing rules. They said that this site is providing its best services but there is biased approach in some matters. They also claim that previously people were reading newspapers but now they can read all at computer screen. Internet sites are providing the news and contents that are mostly uploaded by visitors without and confirmation. They must remove the offending posts if find any. Attorney Stephen Libowsky, who is leader of the group, claimed that the content provider must not be treated as publishers because the contents are not their original creations. Almost 200 discriminatory sentences were found on the sites. This group does not want a particular result but there must be responsible editor who could filter these ads. Jim Buckmaster who is Chief Executive Officer of Craigslist said via an email that our network is providing fair housing for everyone. Moreover, he said that our network is doing more than required to educate visitors about legal requirements. CEO also said that we are trying to set a positive and legal example for society.
