Nicholas Kristof, opinion columnist at The New York Times, wrote that the pornographic website shows videos of rape and underage sex.
I am a big fan of Nicholas Kristof so I was disappointed by his argument with Sam Harris and Bill Maher and his defense of his position in his New York Times column today. Kristof thinks he's defending the moderate; in fact, he's empowering the fanatic.
