Rob & sex ads

Rob Granatstein returned to the Sunday Sun's Comment section on Sunday, four days after being shown the door as editorial page editor.

But you probably didn't notice. His final published words after 17 years at the tabloid were in an unsigned editorial.

Rob makes mention of his anonymous swan song on his Facebook page, writing: "My last contribution to The Toronto Sun. The Sunday editorial."

Speaking of the Sunday Sun, it devoted another two pages to human trafficking on the weekend.

With all of the words it has published about human trafficking, can the tabloid say with certainty that all of the ladies being promoted in its numerous Adult Entertainment ads are on the job willingly?

Ads for massage parlours and other sex services were banished from the Sun in the 1980s, but eventually returned. 

Revenue is revenue.
