Nicholas Kristof: Award-winning Journalist & Political Commentator

Nicholas Kristof is an American journalist, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, and columnist for the New York Times since 2001. His investigative opinion column published on December 4, 2020, titled, “The Children of Pornhub,” shocked and educated many people around the world because it gave visibility to the stories of victims of image-based sexual abuse and child sexual abuse material who have had their violation shared on porn sites and social media platforms. The outcry in response to the article resulted in porn giant Pornhub purging their platform of unverified videos, deleting over 10 million videos from the site—but the battle won't end there. Kristof’s coverage of these issues continues the work of many journalists, advocates, and survivors in uncovering the dark side of the internet that most people do not want to think about, and exposes the implications of directly and indirectly supporting porn sites with user-uploaded content.

Listen to podcast host Garrett Jonsson talk with Nicholas about the ugly side of the porn industry, what has happened since Nicholas Kristof’s bold opinion columns were published, and what he expects he’ll do to continue to uncover the world of sexual exploitation.

Note: We are grateful that Nicholas Kristof took time out of his busy schedule to speak with us and give our listeners more insight into this topic. In the limited amount of time we were able to meet, we did our best to get through as many questions as we could, discussing questions we knew our listeners would have.
