Description

KCOP-TV reports that "the new video teleconferencing technology has created a unique danger for children who use online chat rooms.... children who enter supposedly G-rated chat rooms are often greeted by adults performing sex acts. A producer went online in video chat rooms for several months posing as a 13-year-old girl. Not only did she witness both men and women performing sex acts, but one man ultimately bought her a plane ticket so she could visit him out-of-state. We flew to Wisconsin, captured their meeting at a restaurant on hidden camera, then confronted him.... then confronted the company charged with monitoring the G-rated site and offered advice on how parents can protect their children.
