Jon Gosselin has a right to be "freaked out" over the recent arrest of the Jon & Kate Plus 8 editor.

William Blankinship, an editor that worked on several TLC shows starring children, was arrested on charges of possessing material containing visual representation of a minor engaging in sexual activity.

Luckily, he was not in direct contact with the children, but still a very scary thought, indeed.

Jon has now spoken out about how he feels about the editor's charges and arrest:

Former Jon & Kate Plus 8 Editor Charged With Sex Exploit Of A Minor

jon-and-kate-plus-8-editor-arrested-for-child-porn.jpg

Disgusting.

A former editor for TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8 has been charged with 10 counts of sex exploit of a minor.

56-year-old William Blankinship was arrested in North Carolina last week as part of a State Bureau Investigation sting called "Operation Spyglass."

A total of 24 men were charged with possession and distribution of child pornography and/or sexual acts with a minor. Blankinship's 10 counts of sex exploit of a minor means he possessed material that contained a "visual representation of a minor engaging in sexual activity," aka child porn.

He not only on Jon & Kate, but also Kate Plus 8, 17 Kids and Counting and Table for 12 - all shows featuring children.

Thankfully, he didn't work directly with any children though. The company who hired him, Figure 8 Films, released a statement:

"Bill Blankinship was employed by Serious Robots, with whom Figure 8 Films subcontract for editing services. Upon learning of the shocking allegations his employment was terminated. At no time was this man ever in the field or in direct contact with any of the talent for any of our productions."

Thank goodness, he was caught and arrested. This man doesn't deserve to have a job, let alone his freedom.

another arrest in notw scandal

It gets worse and worse.

Last we heard about the News of the World (NOTW) phone hacking scandal, it had come to our attention that the paper's editor-in-chief Rebekah Brooks gave a cell phone to a friend who was the mother of a murdered child, as a gift to "help her stay in touch with her supporters."

Then we heard that the phone was hacked by the tabloid's private investigator Glen Mulclaire, which we found to be sneaky and GROSS!

News Of The World Editor's Final Address To Staff!

Such a shame that it had to end this way - especially with so many innocent journalists losing out due to the mistakes of a mere few.

Hours before News of the World published its last edition on Saturday following a massive phone hacking scandal, editor Colin Myler addressed his staff by standing on top of a desk and telling them to leave the publication with their heads held high.

Ch-ch-check out the speech (above)!

Wonderful!

We're so glad they were able to take such a positive attitude and end the paper's 168 year history on a high note, filled with praise and respect!

Well done, all of you!

We wouldn't have expected this from him, but it's still pretty cool!

50 Cent has signed a deal with Razorbill publisher Ben Schrank to write and release a book called Playground, which will be a fictional retelling based on his childhood called Playground, and will address the topic of teen bullying!

The story, set to be released next January and will be edited by Laura Arnold, will reportedly focus on a 13-year old schoolyard bully "who finds redemption as he faces what he's done."

The New York Times Is Giving E-Books Their Own Own Best-Seller List!

Filed under: Tech Talk

the-new-york-times-is-giving-e-books-their-own-best-seller-list

Wow! This is a pretty huge step!

Because of the growing popularity and sales of e-books, The New York Times announced yesterday that they will be publishing a best-seller list in both digitally published fiction and non-fiction!

Janet Elder, the editor of news surveys and election analysis for The New York Times, explains:

“We’ve had our eye on e-book sales since e-books began. It was clear that e-books were taking a greater and greater share of total sales, and we wanted to be able to tell our readers which titles were selling and how they fit together with print sales.”

Sam Tanenhuas, the editor of the Book Review, continues:

“To give the fullest and most accurate possible snapshot of what books are being read at a given moment you have to include as many different formats as possible, and e-books have really grown, there’s no question about it.”

Wow! It's amazing to us that so many people have opted for the iPad and Kindle in lieu of a good ole' hard copy!

We don't know…there's something about actual print on paper that we can't seem to tear ourselves away from!

What do U think?? Do U prefer e-books to regular books?
