I’m posting this in the event some one mentions this story to you. It is poorly written & appeared in my Apple News feed (which means it is widely distributed).
This is a tragic story about a woman murdered on vacation.
The article states:
“According to police, Martinez, from Nicaragua, was an immigrant to Costa Rica, and had been staying there since June. Authorities indicated that he was working at the Airbnb without proper documentation. The Airbnb management is said to be cooperating with law enforcement.”
The author chose to refer to the rental as an Airbnb thus implying Airbnb corporate management is involved instead of correctly referring to the property owner or manager as cooperating.
Sadly it seems the trend is to blame Airbnb for problems they didn’t create. Then people who don’t understand it leap to a negative conclusion and want to “Ban Airbnb in our Neighborhood”
