FOX News Producer Busted for Child Porn

Wednesday, February 11, 2009

Bill O’Reilly isn’t the only thing foul at FOX News.

Producer Aaron Burns was served a criminal complaint and was arrested by Federal prosecutors after child porn was found on his computer.

Here’s how it went down:

Last November, Robert Erdely, a Pennsylvania policeman, used standard file-sharing software to find child porn available on peer-to-peer networks. He found some files on a computer later shown to belong to Bruns, and notified a joint task force run by the FBI and the District’s Metropolitan Police Department.

On January 16, the FBI applied for a warrant to search Bruns’s residence, an apartment in northwest Washington. The warrant was approved, and a week later, members of the task force searched Bruns’s apartment at 8:15 in the morning. Bruns was there at the time.

FBI agents and police officers found computers, hard drives, and CDs. A Dell Inspiron laptop contained digital photos and movies “depicting children under the age of ten being sexually abused by adult men and women,” according to the affidavit. Bruns had also taken naked pictures of himself.

No wonder Billo is suddenly so taken with the issue of privacy? You have to wonder what Federal investigators might find on his computer? On the other hand, I don’t think I want to know.

    Schadenfreude is a dish best served hot from the oven.

    Wow! This is the first I’ve heard of FOX’s tangles with child porn. You never cease to amaze me how you manage to get your hands on these stories well before the mainstream media will touch a story. I always felt unclean whenever FOX is on the tube. Now I know why.

  3. Harry says:

    The MSM won’t touch this because it involves their industry so they have an unofficial policy of ignoring the story, in hopes it goes away.

  4. Rachel says:

    I keep thinking one day I’m going to get up and turn on the TV and that creepy guy, Chris Hanson, who busts the guys who show up for trysts with minor age girls has been arrested for something equally freaky. I just have a strong, visceral, ill-at-ease feeling in my gut when I see him. Does anyone else get that vibe?

  5. DB says:

    I’m not sure how they are defining “fair” and “balanced” anymore, but this is sick. I wonder if Bill-O will cover this like he would for, say, an MSNBC producer?

  6. No Nonsense says:

    Rachel YES!

    Chris you did it again… good story

  7. Walk on Socks says:

    Faux News is always the voice of moralizing, judgmental American journalism. Looking down their noses at liberals, gays, feminists and minorities.

    Keith had a segment in his Worst Persons segment where Billo called Cher a “pinhead” for daring to exercise her First Amendment rights of free speech by saying she doesn’t dig Republicans.

    So now we learn they have a kiddie porn freak on staff? What a bunch of gutter hypocrites.

  8. feminazi says:

    Christopher – How do you manage to unearth these gems? I haven’t seen or read a report about Fox News and child porn. This is huge. Fox can be proud of their team. The have an Aryan Nation supporter by the name of Sean Hannity on staff and now a producer caught by the Feds for child porn. What a sleazy operation Rupert has on his hands.

  9. Prairiedog says:

    Why am I not surprised this happened with a FOX News employee?

    Can you imagine what must go on over there when the cameras aren’t on? It has got to be a total freak show of depravity and vice.

    What is up with republicans and child porn? If you google convicted republican child molesters you get about 80 of them. When you google for convicted democratic child molesters, all you get is the list of republican molesters. First in line…

    Do Republican Values Create Child Molesters?

  11. Big Hank says:

    Pretty damned sickening if you want my opinion.

  12. Thanks for sharing these news.

    If Faux News fires him, he can always get a job working as a priest.

  14. JollyRoger says:

    No surprise. The wingtards have many a sick emmeffer among them. They spend all that time screaming about gays so nobody takes too close a look at THEM, dont’cha know.

  15. R.J. says:

    Wow. You never see this kind of stuff at a real news network like Comedy Central.

  16. Chuck says:

    Rachel, the feeling I get when seeing Chris Hanson originates a bit lower down on me than my gut….

  17. Librocrat says:

    Wow. He managed to own the one thing that is more vile than Fox News. Barely.
