The adult ads are in a special section but it's pretty small.  Unless 
they're getting a huge rate, the Phoenix makes a lot more money off of 
event advertising and regular retail than they do off of the adult 
stuff.  It's not part of the news sections and they make it easy to 
toss out the adult stuff if you want to ignore it.

So, they run ads for escort services.  I don't see how that makes the 
Phoenix hypocrites for wanting allegedly racist radio hosts to be 
fired.  I do agree that their radio network was starting to go down the 
low road, and that makes their WEEI opinions look less noble.
