Attorney General Eric Holder Named Nation's Top Porn Enabler

April 2, 2013 - 9:27 AM

Ironically, the U.S. attorney general, Eric Holder, tops the charts of Morality in Media's new Dirty Dozen List of top pornography facilitators.

"Holder's actions keep the porn industry thriving," Patrick A. Trueman, president of Morality in Media, says.

"He not only refuses to enforce obscenity laws currently on the books that prohibit the distribution of hardcore pornography, but he even disbanded the office charged with enforcement," says Trueman.

Trueman is the Former Chief of the Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section at the U.S. Department of Justice where he supervised the prosecution of obscenity crimes, child sex crimes and child pornography.

Here's the full Dirty Dozen list of those who do the most to facilitate the spread of porn:

  1. Attorney General Eric Holder- Shut down the section in charge of prosecuting obscenity cases.
  2. Comcast- Provides explicit material on basic cable packages accessible by the click of your remote.
  3. Facebook- Failure to enforce their own rules makes it one of the top places to share pornography.
  4. Googleplay- Unlike Apple, Android phones put pornography in the hands of any young child that can download an app.
  5. LodgeNet Interactive Corporation- Provides hardcore pornography to major hotels, even though current law prohibits the distribution of obscene pornography.
  6. Hilton- A major hotel provider of hardcore pornography.
  7. American Library Association- Pushes libraries not to use any Internet filters to prevent children from stumbling across porn while doing their homework.
  8. Twitter- States in its policy they "do not regulate Tweets ... including pornography."
  9. Wikipedia- Does nothing to wipe their content of obscene material.
  10. Cosmo- Relies on sexually explicit content to sell magazines to young girls.
  11. Barnes & Noble- Sells adult and child erotica.
  12. Department of Defense- Pervasive porn causes harassment in the workplace, addiction, and problems at home.

Founded in 1962, Morality in Media, Inc. describes itself as "the leading organization focused on opposing pornography and indecency through public education and the application of the law."
