The Right's Sexual Abuse Problem

No, it's not about this

Now that the G20 is in full swing, the personalities at Fox"News" are ready to talk about the protesters rather than what world leaders are hoping to accomplish.

They’ve always been there. But now they’re coordinated by the internet, now they can talk to each other. It’s like child molesters, you know? I mean, child molesters have always been around but now they got a place to go and gather and do their evil deeds.

He's even gone so far as to say that the internet has a "liberal bias".
