Poll question: Is Chris Hansen of DATELINE just a big ol' hack?
Okay, okay, so Hansen's taking aim at would-be child molesters with the help of Perverted Justice and the local police department. But remember back in the day when Dateline actually presented news stories that were more than just mindless fluff?

So what do you think? Hack or not a hack?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. He's a hack - he saw an opportunity and he's all over it -
Most of what they do is entrapment.

If parents paid closer attention to what their kids were doing, instead of zoning out in front of the TV every night, or if they didn't have to work 12 hours a day - well maybe I'm wrong but...

I can't wait until they come up with a big time Republican, standing naked in their "set up" backyard with a hard-on, and a six pack waiting for a 12 year old boy.

Now that would be "must see" TV.

3. So these creepy bottom feeders have been entrapped?
If there was no internet, they would still be out there looking for an opportunity to prey on somebody's child. No sympathy from me for these blood sucking inbreds.

6. Like most people on television he found a gimmick and is riding it out.
It just happens that his gimmick plays on the fears of over-protective and barely interested parents across America.
