CNN’s Drew Griffin Talks To Reddit Troll On ‘AC360′

CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has made a point of regularly taking to task websites that post provocative and legally dubious photos of children. On his show last night, correspondent Drew Griffin spoke to Michael Brutsch, one of the people responsible for possibly the largest depository for the images, the “jailbait” forum on Reddit. Brutsch went by the alter-ego “ViolentAcrez” on the site.

Reddit is a massive website, and is probably best known for its “IAmA” posts, where accomplished people answer questions from the community. President Obama recently participated in an “IAmA.” It is also a home to pornography, and sections that feature children in sexually explicit or gruesome situations. Brutsch said that Reddit rewarded him for his posts in forums like “jailbait.”
