Amazon Removes Pedophilla Books, Others Remain: Join the Live Chat

Tonight, profiting from pedophilia. After our report last night, Amazon.com finally pulled a controversial how-to book telling pedophiles what they can get away with. This morning, they pulled another pro-pedophilia book by the same author. But as we'll show you tonight, there are any number of similar books with content just as disturbing still being sold on their site.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

Here are some of them:

1) Keep it short (we don't have time to read a "book")
2) Don't write in ALL CAPS (there's no need to yell)
3) Use your real name (first name only is fine)
4) No links
5) Watch your language (keep it G-rated; PG at worst - and that includes $#&*)

    Oh boy, I'm just so, so disappointed. Amazon has served me so well. I had no idea this was going on. Do we have guarantees, does anyone know, about Borders or Barnes and Noble not doing the same thing? (I'm wondering about switching my allegiance...and my business.)

    Anderson, Amazon should turn over the name of everyone who purchased a pedophile book so the police can investigate any possible link to current crimes against children.

    Remove all those pedophilia books, Amazon. Don't make children victims to put food in your mouth.

    I watch you daily and i cannot believe that first of all someone would even write this book, but that a company like Amazon.com would let them sell it.

    I guess when it comes to making a buck it doesn't matter if children get hurt.

    Amazon is flirting with a terrible fury of lawsuits. They don't have control. They can't respond to Anderson out of fear and lack of control. They think it will just go away.

    Who is the CEO of Amazon?
    We should all write a letter to this person!

    I don't think that pulling books like how to hurt children and get away with it has anything to do with the 1rst ammendment and there should be censorship on these types of books. We have to make a stand and let our voices be heard when it comes to encouraging sick people who want to do harm to the children.

    @JoAnn-OH I join you in gratitude and thanks to our veterans for their service to this country!
    I miss being able to honor my father in person for being such a patriot and veteran.

    This is the age old debate between Liberty and Security. In this case, national security is the same as security of individual children

    Just shocking, Emily. I don't understand it either...inciting to a crime should be considered 'accessory' to one.

    if 1 book slips by ok just delete it in go on, but 2!

    If they best that Amazon can do is HIDE behind the First Abandonment, they have NO argument!

    Doesn't Amazon consider these books child exploitation? Isn't that illegal?

    Freedom of Speech doesnt apply when it puts children in danger.

    @Pam
    "Why isn’t a how-to manual on pedophilia considered child porn??"
    Probably because there is no pictures.
    I don't understand why it's not considered "incitement" of a future crime!

    There is a reason why we have the Ten Commandments because of thinking like this of pedophilia and others.

    Who at Amazon doesn't think that a book promoting pedophilia is "disturbing material".

    November 11, 2010 at 10:09 pm |
  19. Nancy in Oregon

    I would agree, Kenya. It isn't just Amazon, it would be any company who publishes or sells materials on how to exploit or attack others...whoa. That is not okay.

    Amazon is my hometown in Seattle area...... Amazom won't let media at Amazon headquarters.

    the absurdity is hilarious in a way...they don't condone cruelty to animals but heck, let's sell materials condoning pedophilia....who cares about opportunistically abusing children.

    why do i have a feeling that if you do a little more due diligence, you will find questionable employees in that company, possibly in the higher ups...allegedly.

    You'd think that Amazon would want to talk with Patrick after what happened last night!
    What a bunch of fools.

    Why isn't Amazon talking to any news outlets?

    I have appreciated the way you have covered this topic. I think it would also be a great time to cover other atrocities like NAMBLA The North American Man/Boy Love Association. I am sure this author is probably a board member of this group. Would love to see you expose this terrible association.

    How is that guide to pedophilia any different from a guide to rape, murder, getting away with crime, etc. Just plain wrong. The publishers who give the green-light for these kinds of books to be published need to be kept honest, not just Amazon!

    It sure is, Sue R. Canton MI. I'm just sick, too, about Amazon's collusion with this. Such a let down to me.

    Another book by the same author?!

    I'm glad that my boycott of Amazon is forever!

    IO'm sorry, but freedom of speech that encourages Pedophiles and educates them as to how to be a successful pedophile is beyond the protect of the 1st ammendment to me.

    I'm so happy that Anderson is "keepin' em honest", but shame on Amazon for continuing to sell books of that nature! 😡

    Amazon is really two-faced! What other materials appear when people purchase these books?

    Too close to Xmas for Amazon. Isn't Amazon a global retailer. What do other countries say about this?

    Good evening Anderson and everyone. I'm glad Amazon pulled the book. I'm not surprised. That book sounds sickening. I missed last night but read the comments today. My modem is sick but I'll try to hang in.

    It's good to hear that Amazon removed the book about pedophilia. It's discusting and sad that there are so many more books like this out there.

    Geez, I can't believe that Amazon "allowed" a book to help pedophiles.

    Hi! It's great to see you on. Happy Veteran's Day.
    I'm glad to hear the book on pedophilia has been pulled, though it still seems a strange situation with the author and amazon.com.
