Kid Nation

Update: He bribed the "parents" with Dolphin tix.

I first thought it was a producer of this show. But it was a news producer.

A CBS producer was arrested Saturday after deputies say he attempted to arrange sex with 11-year-old girl by communicating with undercover investigators posing as the fictitious girl's father, authorities said.

Daniel J. Barron, 56, a 15-year producer with CBS News who lives in New Jersey, allegedly told an undercover St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office detective to bring his 11-year-old daughter to the Fort Lauderdale hotel where he was staying while in town to cover Sunday's Miami Dolphins game, according to an arrest report.

Barron allegedly told the undercover detective, whom he met Saturday afternoon in an America Online chat room called "open minded parents," that he wanted to videotape himself having sex with the girl after he got off work at 8 p.m. Saturday night, the report said.

"I will be very gentle with her," Barron wrote, according to investigators.

A chat room for "open-minded parents"? I'm not the kind who sees demonic activity around ever corner, but what kind of beast grips the soul of someone who would offer up their children to pervs?
