From now on, folks who post in the comments section will have to come up with a better name than "Anonymous"
I have made this decision after some cowardly soul bared his or her opinion on the Predatory Reporting
entry below. Not only was the commenter snide and sarcastic, he or she tried to change the subject and/or missed the point of what I'd said. The entry did not ask for sympathy for people engaged in reprehensible acts [pedophiles] but to expand the exposure to other people [corporate criminals, con men and the like] who cause harm to others as well.
Mind you, I think Chris Hansen's show is every bit as tawdry and disgusting as the characters his film crew entraps. As for "...politicizing the news
..." the Anonymous poster apparently fails to notice that the very fact that a civilian [Chris Hansen] sets up, arranges with police to arrest Hansen's prey, and televises the bust for some titillating sex-infused entrapment entertainment, says that the whole endeavor was politicized a long time ago. But to call the program "news" is pushing it.
I'll get off the soap box now.
