Is Verizon Really Defending Child Porn?

Verizon is defending its distribution of child-theme pornography in a letter to Morality in Media (MIM), which included the company on its 2014 Dirty Dozen List of pornography’s top facilitators. The company believes that its “explosion in choice” in pornography is a “tremendous benefit” to consumers, according to a letter from Verizon’s director of global corporate citizenship.

I Did the Babysitter, I Banged My Stepdad, Pigtail Teens Pounded and Mom, Daughter and Me are some of the hardcore porn titles featured on Verizon’s FiOS video-on-demand service. Morality in Media highlighted these and other offensive videos, such as Gang Bang Sex Slaves and some with insulting racial overtones, such as Massive Black Butts, in a letter to Verizon notifying the company of its inclusion on the 2014 Dirty Dozen List.

“Verizon should not be profiting from child sex fantasy videos,” says Patrick A. Trueman, Morality in Media’s president. “In fact, Verizon should not profit from pornography at all."

“America’s children and families are suffering a pandemic of harm from pornography, and since Verizon became a leading porn distributor, it is responsible for much of that harm,” he adds.

Morality in Media has now written a letter to Verizon’s board of directors asking each one if they believe Verizon should profit from pornographic films that promote child sex abuse and incest. MIM also noted that it is also a violation of federal law for Verizon to distribute hardcore or obscene pornography on its services, citing Title 18 U.S.C. Section 1468.
