    First the link:

    http://current.com/shows/the-young-turks/videos/sopa-update-congress-downloads-porn-while-trying-to-shut-down-the-internet



    Cenk takes questions from the live chat at current.com/theyoungturks and then returns to coverage of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). TorrentFreak.com checked IP addresses of Congressional computers to see what files had been downloaded, which turned up links to self-help books, such as “Do Not Open – An Encyclopedia of the World’s Best-Kept Secrets” — “which I suppose makes sense in Congress,” Cenk says.


    They also found illegal downloads of popular movies, TV shows and even porn (“Gangland Creampie 21″). “Now you know what Congress is downloading while they’re trying to pretend to stop downloading illegally — and nearly shutting down the Internet while they’re doing it.”




    Here's another video which talks about how Congress stopped a Anti Porn Amendment to SOPA

    Porn is a multi-billion industry. Where will you get all that revenue if you stop its online activities?

    You know this is funny on two accounts. 1) This proves that SOPA will be a huge mistake for Congress to establish because most of the people who pirate are the ones that don't make a big deal about it. 2) SOPA can cause people who are in power to be blackmail if they go against the act. If Congress gets caught but avoids the consequences then this shows how pointless the act was in the first place.

    Agreed! TYT is awesome! It's funny how these congressmen got caught in their own shit. Seriously, every time they try to throw SOPA in our faces, we should counter them with this report.

    Did they ever have a show on Air America? Name sounds familiar and I used to listen to Air America years ago when my dad had XM Radio (before they became Sirius XM). Never listened to them (I think their slot was during school for me) but I'd remember them just starting to come on or something.

    CAR (congress approval rating)=6%

    This is why Congress shouldn't have such a high approval rating. It should be 0%

    Thing is that we're handing over the power to companies that make hollywood movies to stop any slight hint of piracy. Why not the Porn companies? They make loads of content that gets posted all over the internet. Where's their sweet deal, huh?
