Congress Reacts to Wikipedia Firestorm By James R. Marsh on April 29, 2010 FoxNews.com was recently informed that the day after the Wikipedophilia post appeared on this blog, Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, sent a copy of Wikipedia co-founder Larry Sanger’s letter to the FBI. Rep. Steve Austria, R-Ohio, sent a copy of the same letter to the FBI on April 27. Perhaps this is the kind of bi-partisanship we’ve all been waiting for. Stay tuned for updates which are posted here on FoxNews.com.
An interesting side note:
An interesting side note: Wikipedia apparently got its start in the world of online pornography. According to an article on Wikipedia: Bomis …is a dot-com company founded in 1996. Its primary business is the sale of advertising on the Bomis.com search portal. It was founded by [the current head of Wikipedia] Jimmy Wales and Tim Shell, and provided support for the free encyclopedia projects Nupedia and Wikipedia.
On the Bomis.com site, Bomis creates and hosts web rings around search terms popular among male users. The rings are currently categorized broadly as “Babe”, “Entertainment”, “Sports”, “Adult”, “Science fiction”, and “Other”. The “Adult”, “Babe”, and “Entertainment” categories are the most frequently updated and the most popular. Revenue from search-related pages is generated from advertising and affiliate marketing.
Bomis ran a website called Bomis Premium at premium.bomis.com until 2005, offering customers access to premium, X-rated pornographic content. Until mid-2005, Bomis also featured the Bomis Babe Report, a free blog, publishing news and reviews about celebrities, models, and the adult entertainment industry. The Babe Report prominently linked to Bomis Premium and frequently posted updates about new models joining Bomis. Bomis has also operated nekkid.info, a free repository of selected erotic photographs, and continues to host The Babe Engine, “a precision babe search engine”, which indexes photos ranging from glamour photography to pornography. Bomis is best known for having supported the creation of the free-content online encyclopedia projects Nupedia and Wikipedia. Bomis hosted Nupedia in 2000, and Larry Sanger was hired to manage and edit that project. http://www.childlaw.us/2010/04/congress-reacts-to-wikipedia-f.html

Wikipedia – pedophilia allegations
US cardinal ignored pedophilic priest 29 Apr 2010 A recently uncovered statement reveals that a US cardinal kept silent after learning that a California priest had molested a boy 15 years ago.
Former archbishop of San Francisco, Cardinal William Levada, talked about the case in a 2005 deposition obtained by The Associated Press. Levada decided not to remove the Rev. Milton Walsh from the ministry after learning he had molested a 13-year-old boy. The cardinal said that he did not contact police because he trusted Walsh would not reoffend. When Levada learned of the abuse, Walsh had been pastor for six years at St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco. Walsh remained there for two more years and was removed from active ministry in 2002, when US bishops passed a “zero tolerance” policy on sex abuse and police started investigating. Levada is currently the highest-ranking American at the Vatican and head of the office that defrocks pedophile
