    ... is the Dateline NBC kiddie sex busts they do every week, it seems.

    So awful, so painful, so strangely hilarious. Dude on now just got cracked offering to blow a thirteen-year-old boy. Brutally, sadly funny.

    I'd watch a marathon of this stuff.

    Naw, it was some creepy old-looking dude. A creepy old-looking dude who wasn't Michael Jackson.

    I hear it's better when you're there. One of the towns close to my last stop was doing the same thing Dateline is. One of the TV reporters and I became pretty good friends. She had an exclusive on the bust and said it was amazing the crap they would say to try to get out of it.

    My station did one of these a few years ago, using the same group that Dateline uses.

    I couldn't believe how many guys showed up at the house looking for the fake teenager. I always assumed they had to run the sting for a long time to get enough guys showing up to make a story out of it. I was wrong. We had guys showing up to the door while another dude was just leaving. It was pretty disheartening.

    And... it doesn't matter how many of them Hanson does... it's like shooting fish in a barrel each time.

    I don't have children, but if I did, this shit would make me want to hug them a little tighter. /sappystuffy

    So, so sad.

    I don't know...if this were ever broadcast opposite a Maury paternity test episode (also shown weekly), I might sprain a thumb trying to flip back and forth.

    How can any potential pedophile even think for a minute that the "teen" they're talking to online ISN'T a cop or reporter at this point? There's been so many of these shows and yet they just keep on trying.

    The stupidity is amazing.
