Skip to comments.Reporter Quits Yahoo (says Free Republic hosts child porn)

Yahoo News editor Andrew Golis says star reporter John Cook is quitting to re-join Gawker because "he prefers the license Gawker gave him to add his opinions into his reporting to the scale and credibility Yahoo! News could offer."
John tells AOL's Jeff Bercovici that's hogwash.
He says he quit Yahoo because they censored him like crazy.
In one instance, Cook was forced to bowdlerize a quotation from New York Times reporter James Risen; he was told that referring to masturbation, even euphemistically, was unacceptable. On similar grounds, he was prohibited from writing about the conservative website Free Republic hosting child pornography. Most glaringly, he was told that a proposed story on the Obama Administration raising the salary of White House staffers by 9% lacked the necessary balance; it was killed

I think the Admin of that site has been busy lately. Animated GIFs of dogs humping legs take a lot of time and effort to prepare.
This guy is admitting to possessing and trafficking child porn?
Hey FBI lurkers, go get this guy.
Wow they do look like they are twins.
And why wasn’t this slime ball arrested for possessing kiddie porn?
Links or not, he was technically in ‘possession’ of it.
That got kicked around last May: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2519759/posts
Can a child pornographer last longer at Free Republic than a Giuliani supporter?
Some observations: 1) as soon as a reporter inserts his/her opinion into his/her work, he/she ceases being a reporter and becomes a commentator. Yahoo evidently doesn't understand this, because their bias is evident in everything they write.
2) Yahoo news has no scale and credibility...see above.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
“He admitted in his Daily KOS journal he added kiddie porn links to profile pages on the website Free Republic
Shouldn’t the question be asked how he got the child porn in the first place? I don’t think you just google it.
child pornography follows:
No you can’t just google it.
I’m willing to be he ‘uploaded’ it from his own computer.
Time for a little ‘visit’ from the authorities...
be = bet
I dunno...I am sure that google tries their best to help child pornographers peddle their wares in every way they can. After all..Google is a big supporter of democrats.
Wasn’t that at the same time some troll kept posting pics of that very naked old homosexual holding his nether cheeks open? That pic was posted as a thread repeatedly. I think the IP addy was finally banned.
I you are anything like me a lot of those hits were your own :)
good point two of the most depressed, angry and 'misunderstood' people on that planet.
How damned low can they go?
That is a common internet prank using a image swap script. For example, someone looks for an image of a bunny on Google and posts it. They don’t know that the site they posted it from uses that script and replaces the “Goatse” (don’t Google that) image with the bunny.
Naah. Heesh not on drugsh. He is just a lil...(Bents forward in intense concentration) druhnk...But...No drugsh.
Wow, Bernie Ward, the "lyin' of the left" out here in Pelousy-ville is a guest of the state department of corrections for doing less than this POS. If I were Bernie, I'd sit on this guy when he gets out.
Actually this was a troll that posted it. Usually early in the morning. Seems to me that I remember some changes in software and for awhile newbies couldn’t post threads.
