Rolling Stone covered for accused child porn offender James Gordon Meek by altering story after FBI raid
By Ethan Huff // Apr 12, 2023

It has been nearly a year since the FBI raided the Arlington, Va., home of former ABC senior producer James Gordon Meek, who was indicted on three counts of child pornography. And there to try to save the day for him was none other than Rolling Stone, which ran a piece framing the raid as an abuse of power.

Editor-in-Chief Noah Shachtman carefully edited the article to remove all mention that the raid was part of a federal investigation into child porn, instead choosing to call it "quite possibly, the first" raid to be carried out by the Biden regime against a reporter.

Shachtman's changes made the raid sound more like a political hit on a journalist rather than a law enforcement pursuit of a child abuser who was storing illicit materials depicting the sexual abuse of minors in his Dropbox account.

We know from the facts that Meek's devices allegedly contained images depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct, as well as multiple chat conversations he had with others that were pedophilic in nature.

The participants in these conversations "expressed enthusiasm for the sexual abuse of children," according to the Department of Justice (DoJ).

"In two of those conversations, a username allegedly associated with Meek received and distributed child sexual abuse materials through an internet-based messaging platform," reports further explain.

"Following the raid, the department obtained a search warrant for Meek's iCloud account on November 14. They contained backups of two of his devices and included a screenshot of one of the explicit discussions ... They also uncovered an Apple laptop that contained 'approximately 90 images and videos of child pornography.'"

NPR wants to know: why did Rolling Stone falsely claim that Meek was targeted for his coverage of national security?

It is important to note that Meek, a divorced father of two, was previously an investigator for the House Homeland Security Committee. He was also allegedly caught using Snapchat and Instagram to converse and trade images of unidentified minor females.

All of this was omitted from Shachtman's Rolling Stone coverage of the Meek case. NPR reported that Shachtman conveniently omitted the fact that Meek's home was raided over child sex abuse, and not because of government abuse of power.

"Why did Rolling Stone suggest Meek was targeted for his coverage of national security, rather than something unrelated to his journalism?" NPR's David Folkenflik about the matter.

One can only wonder: is there something that Shachtman is likewise trying to hide? Why would he want to cover for a child abuser? Are the two friends? What connection does Shachtman have with Meek?

It turns out that Washington attorney Mark Zaid, who is referred to in independent reporting as having "gotten clearances for guys who had child porn issues and love[s] hanging out at Disney World by [him]self," called Shachtman on Meek's behalf while reporter Tatiana Siegel was writing the story.

"Zaid confirmed to NPR that he called Shachtman – and admitted that Meek was a longtime friend and client who he was representing on any potential prosecution or investigation of his potential possession of classified material," reported Zero Hedge.

In the comments, many were hardly surprised that Rolling Stone would go to bat for a child predator rather than expose his crimes, especially as this same media outlet and many others push "rainbow" perversion on today's children.

"The 'rainbow' umbrella is their protection and encouragement," one person wrote about how the Cult of LGBT is providing cover for child abusers and perverts.
