WASHINGTON, D.C. — Morality in Media (MiM) is at it again, this time targeting what the self-appointed porn watchdog group is calling mainstream America’s top 12 facilitators of porn that includes U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, libraries, Barnes & Noble booksellers and more.

Calling on the public to help “expose and shame 12 top enablers of our country’s pornography pandemic,” MiM’s “Dirty Dozen List” maintained that Holder refuses to enforce existing federal obscenity laws and has issued no new commercial obscenity cases, conveniently missing last year's conviction of Ira Isaacs that apparently doesn’t count because he is an individual.

The conservative group also penned a March 4 letter to Holder announcing the List and carping about his alleged prosecutorial inactivity and ignoring the “illegal” distribution of porn to Americans.

Other companies on the hit list are cable and satellite TV provider Comcast, LodgeNet, Facebook, Twitter, Hilton Hotels, Wikipedia and Cosmopolitan magazine that MiM said is as pornographic as Playboy and encourages women to accept the “pornified culture around them.”

Most troubling is the organization's book burning-like attack on the American Library Association. “For years, this innocuous-sounding entity has worked to convince community public libraries to keep library computers unfiltered and thus provide pornography to patrons,” MiM said. It also accused the Association of inadvertently exposing library patrons of all ages to hardcore porn and even child pornography on library computers.

MiM CEO and President Patrick A. Trueman’s crusade also targets the military, claiming the Pentagon is turning a blind eye toward adult magazines being sold on military bases, yet fails to describe the names of the magazines or the level of “porn” the publications contain.
