    I'm not suggesting there isn't some illegal activity that Fogle is/was involved in, only that it's a little early for the "child porn" smear to be floated - as you said, he's screwed now regardless of the outcome.
    I am not smearing him. But the optics of it are horrible for him.

    An excellent example.
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    My apologies - I wasn't at all claiming you were smearing him - it's the story and the slant it took that is the smear at this point. And you're right - that smear looks really bad for him.

    Police conduct raids for nebulous reasons all the time. They often don't even raid the right house. I'm in "wait and see" mode.

    Stop it, John. This is a character assassination thread, and Fogle is guilty. Of what, we don't know...but so what? Gawker has dipped back into Fogle's past and discovered that he rented porn videos to other college kids out of his dorm room. This clearly proves that Fogle is into kiddie porn.

    Why wait for facts to come in, especially if a swipe can be made at Fox News, which is the only news outlet reporting?

    Sometimes I doubt your commitment to character assassination.

    Mmmm... not really. There have been many instances reported in the news of raids being conducted for rather silly reasons, and/or at the wrong house.

    Your cop hate aside, thousands of raids or searches are conducted yearly without a hitch.

    Correct, but as someone already mentioned, he's screwed whether he's guilty or not.

    This is unfortunately true. It causes conflict for me because I'm also old enough to come from a time, before the internet, before social media, when reporters and their bosses were good friends with politicians and celebrities who got away with some pretty bad stuff that we regular plebes never heard about until some tell all book decades later. I have to believe transparency and knowledge is better, I just wish the 24/7 news cycle didn't make rushing to judgment such a blood sport.
