Is Eric Holder in Bed with the Porn Industry?

Attorney General facilitates national porn pandemic

WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 10, 2013) – U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder’s staunch refusal to enforce federal laws prohibiting hardcore, obscene pornography raises the question of whether he is in bed with the porn industry. Holder tops Morality in Media’s Dirty Dozen list of pornography facilitators for protecting the porn industry from prosecution. Under federal law, it is illegal to distribute hardcore, obscene, pornography on the Internet, cable/satellite TV, hotel/motel TV, in retail shops, through the mail, or by common carrier.

“Zero. That’s the number of new obscenity cases Holder’s Justice Department has initiated in more than four years at the helm of the U.S. Department of Justice,” said Morality in Media President Patrick A. 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.

“Consumption of hardcore adult pornography leads to sex-trafficking, increased child pornography, violence against women and a host of other ills. It is essential that Attorney General Holder enforce current laws to protect children and women,” added Trueman. “Porn users cannot distinguish between trafficked women, prostitutes, and porn stars. Hardcore adult content fuels the global sex trade by driving up demand, with many viewers seeking to act out what they have seen.”

Frequent viewing of pornography causes users to seek out harder and more deviant material in order to maintain excitement. The lack of enforcement for adult content creates more demand for extremely deviant pornography as well as child pornography, causing child pornography to skyrocket to one of the top of sex crimes in America.

Morality in Media asks the public to contact the Justice Department and Attorney General Holder to enforce the obscenity laws to protect children and women. Holder can be contacted directly here: http://bit.ly/10KeYbS.
