Is there any doubt whatsoever that if this had been, say, Rush Limbaugh, that this would have made the front page on all major newspapers and would lead all the news programs for weeks on end? Same if it had been Hannity, Savage or anyone else on the conservative side.

Distribution? What part of research required distribution of this kind of sh!t?

Bernie was apparently hitting on underaged girls back in his priesthood days.

Just another typical “San Francisco Democrat” — I’m sure that Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, and friends are deeply concerned, because we know they care so much about the children.....

True, but if this were to make all the MSM news for weeks, people would be looking at each other and saying, "Bernie who?" Only those of us who at one time or another have been subjected to the angry ranting of this fool have the vaguest idea who he is other than just another fat sicko into kiddie porn.

I have no doubt. But, then again, Rush, Sean, and Mike all have significant audiences. I've never even heard of this guy.

If you listened to the news on KGO and didn't turn it off fast enough after, you'd hear him describe himself as "The Lion of the Left."

If they treated him the same, it would be, "popular Liberal talk-radio host and former priest Bernie Ward...".

Bernie Ward

Everyone in San Francisco has.  He'd been on KGO radio (a Liberal station) in San Francisco a long time before getting fired for this.  He hosted a program on Sunday mornings called 'God Talk' during which he talked mostly about liberal politics.  He also had another daily talk show.  One of the most repulsive characters on the air.

The weird thing is that a dominatrix turned him in.  I guess even a dominatrix has standards!  And good for her!  He had crossed the line into child porn, and she turned him in.

Go to Smoking Gun and read the online conversations between Ward and the dominatrix he was chatting with. It sounds like there was weird sh*t going on with him and his own children. Gross beyond belief.

Uh huh. I heard Bernie say a lot of preposterous things, many about himself, way back in the '90's on Saturdays when he was the ONLY daytime talk show on a station in Youngstown, OH. Perhaps Bernie even believed what he said; nobody else did, and his stint was short lived.

Yes, he basically admitted to molesting his children. I have no idea why he wasn't jailed immediately. It wasn't until this week that we found out he was trading pictures of young children being whipped, tortured, ect...

Hopefully, Bernie meets some nice Bubbas in jail.

Bernie Ward was a “Bush-basher”, gravely voiced radio host for 15 hours a week on KGO for years. He was a total waste of air-time and one of the most toxic influences in the wonderful San Francisco culture. 87 months is a fitting and lenient punishment for the Bush-bashing pervert.

So a pain pill popping radio host is talked about endlessly in the press for being a degenerate, and a child molester kiddie porn pervert radio host is not.

Fascinating.

he could have a real hard time in prison. He may need to be pc’d up. That would make for one long sentence.

The reason for that is because Rush is the king of talk radio, while no one knows who Bernie Ward is, nor do they care.

Then explain the press orgasms over Ted Haggard in Colorado. Nobody outside Colorado knows who he was and yet he got wall to wall coverage for his sexual ‘missteps’.

Ya I never heard of Ted Haggard before his national debut either but he was all over the media like a famous celeb.

A lot of folks still idolize Bernie. One caller to KGO today
was gushing about all the wonderful things Bernie did for so many people blah blah. Who gives a rip !
What about the evil he nurtured. What about concern for the children he violated !

Bernie will not be harmed in prison (Fed pen at Lompoc)
because he is to repulsive even for the prison crowd.

A pat on the wrist. He should have gotten 87 years but I suppose we should be glad the judge did not turn him lo0se.

Apparently he is eligible to go to Lompoc so he may end up working at the dairy farm there.. ala Milken and Boesky.

Ward’s attorney, Doron Weinberg, citing the numerous letters of support Ward received after pleading guilty in May and his volunteer work, argued for a five-year prison sentence - the mandatory minimum. Weinberg said Ward initially downloaded the child porn for research as a journalist.

“It’s clear that it ended in a dark place,” Weinberg said. “Bernie Ward is a good man.”

He's also fat.

Where he's going, lots of his new friends are going to say
Bernie is "built for comfort".

Bernie is going to learn a lot about perversion without using
the internet!
Heck, he'll probably be right at home.
