Salon Apparently Deletes Controversial Article by a Self-Admitted Pedophile


The far-left website Salon has apparently deleted a controversial article authored by a self-admitted pedophile.

As chronicled by the Gateway Pundit, Salon allowed self-described pedophile Todd Nickerson to publish an article on their site discussing his behavior on Sept. 21, 2015.

In the article, which has been saved on a web archive, Nickerson claimed he never acted on his urges, but made the case that he should be allowed to live openly regarding his attraction to children.

Mysteriously, the article has vanished from Salon's archives, and a search for "Todd Nickerson" on their site currently brings you to a page showing no results.

But a poster on the popular pro-Donald Trump sub-reddit r/The_Donald posted links to old tweets from Salon's official Twitter account which link to the article by Nickerson.

All of the links (including those in the tweets) to the original article by Nickerson currently redirect to a section of Salon titled "Life Stories."

One tweet from September 21, 2015 states, "I'm a pedophile, but not a monster." Another tweet posted on Oct. 1, 2015 states, "I’m a pedophile, you’re the monsters: My week inside the vile right-wing hate machine[.]"

At the time of this publication, Salon has not released any information about why the article has been deleted from their archives.
