Nevada Airport Pulls Magazine Over Cover Story About Brothel

RENO, Nev. (AP) — A Nevada airport has pulled a women's lifestyle magazine from its advertising racks after it ran a cover story about a brothel near Reno.

Reno Gazette-Journal reported Thursday that the Bliss Life magazine featured the Mustang Ranch Brothel and its workers in its March issue on racks at the Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

Airport Authority spokesman Brian Kulpin says they have regulations on what can be advertised.

The magazine publisher argues that while the magazine is distributed for free, the content is editorial.

The brothel owner accused the airport of being out of touch with women's rights to choose their work, including legal prostitution.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
