A New Brunswick TV personality has failed in his “looking at child porn online for research” excuse and found guilty of being icky.
Though I don’t particularly believe his story (after all, how much can you learn about child porn just by looking at it?), it makes me wonder if there should be an exception in these kinds of laws for journalists with legitmate interest, and if so whether laws should even exist in the first place that restrict what information we can expose ourselves to.
Should looking at dirty pictures be illegal? And if so, where does one draw the line? Am I breaking the law if I watch a Tatu video?
