One would think tabloidish news shows like Good Morning America would be interested in the hot story of a former acting director of cybersecurity for the Department of Health and Human Services being sentenced to 25 years in jail for child pornography – the kind of vile stuff that includes the rape and murder of children.

But you would be wrong. Timothy deFoggi, 56, formerly of Germantown, Maryland in the DC suburbs, was convicted by a federal jury in Nebraska in August and nobody in the national press really paid much attention. Isn’t this at least as interesting or outrageous as a Louisiana state legislator speaking a white supremacist event? Where are the “To Catch a Predator” folks at Dateline NBC?
