As someone who has researched and exposed institutional child abuse for nearly a decade, never directly asking for a penny for doing so and as someone who has received death threats in the process - i immediately felt uncomfortable listening to david seaman's coverage of 'pizzagate'.
I felt like a long term cannabis farmer might feel encountering monsanto pre-packaged cannabis cigarettes or how an unknown song writer feels when a record label takes a model who can't sing and gets them to record a song in the style of the song writer and uses technology to make them sound good - making a packet in the process. the nature of the topic of child abuse is not one that lends itself as a backdrop to discussing this kind of financial exploitation and so i have said nothing on the topic until now. Today, i found this video on voat.co of David Seaman describing how he basically hunts 'buzz' and the latest hottest topic - essentially whoring himself out to any end in order to get attention and thus get paid. Firstly, if he has been acting that way for years (sufficiently that he is being interviewed as an expert on the topic) he would have already amassed a fair bit of money and secondly, obviously, this background explains why I and many others feel ill at ease with his 'coverage' of the topic and immediate playing of a victim card.
I don't want to labour the point here and I don't want to distract away from the actually important topic of protecting children. Here's the video anyway:
