CNN Producer Charged with Luring Underage Women into Home for ‘Sexual Training’
A CNN producer who often boasted about his closeness with recently fired anchor Chris Cuomo was arrested Friday after he was charged with “three counts of using a facility of interstate commerce to attempt to entice minors to engage in unlawful sexual activity” by a federal grand jury in Vermont.
The producer is 44-year-old John Griffin, who allegedly attempted to “entice parents of underage girls to hand over their daughters for sexual training hosted by himself” reports The Federalist.
Griffin has worked for CNN the past nine years has allegedly used social media online messaging platforms such as Kik and Google Hangouts to lure parents and their underage daughters to his house in order to teach them sexually.
Griffin’s LinkedIn page stated his position as “LEAD ANCHOR’S SENIOR PRODUCER, CNN ‘NEW DAY.’ Works shoulder-to-shoulder with lead anchor Chris Cuomo, seeing him through each show and producing live breaking news across the country and around the world.”
If convicted, Griffin could face life in prison, as well as “the federal government intends to seek the forfeiture of Griffin’s Ludlow house, his Tesla, a Mercedes, and other property that was used in the commission of the charged offenses.”
The Federalist reports on the case details:
According to the U.S. Department of Justice’s official press release, Griffin allegedly said a “woman is a woman regardless of her age,” and boasted that he could teach girls how to become sexually submissive.
Griffin started in April 2020 by trying to entice minors to engage in sexual activity online and even offered to host a “virtual training session” where he reportedly instructed a mother and daughter to do sexual acts in front of him.
In June of 2020, Griffin allegedly convinced and paid a mother with two underage daughters $3,000 to fly her 9-year-old across the country from Nevada to Boston to be “trained properly.”
“The mother and child flew to Boston in July of 2020, where Griffin picked them up in his Tesla and drove them to his Ludlow house. At the house, the daughter was directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity,” the press release stated.
Griffin allegedly made a similar offer to the mother of a 16-year-old girl that same month.

Fake, AI-generated photo of Pentagon explosion causes brief drop in US stocks
A fake photo of a terrifying explosion at the Pentagon circulated the internet Monday, but not before causing panic in the stock market. “A purportedly AI-generated photo of a fake explosion at the Pentagon spread rapidly on social media on Monday – prompting mass confusion among users and a brief selloff in the US stock market” reports the New York Post.
As the photo was shared on social media platforms, US stocks took a dip; fortunately recovery occurred “quickly”. The Post reported that the photo showing billowing smoke “was shared by Russian state media outlet and other accounts alongside claims that an explosion has occurred at the complex. RT later deleted the image.”
This morning, an AI generated image of an explosion at the US Pentagon surfaced.
With multiple news sources reporting it as real, the S&P 500 fell 30 points in minutes.
This resulted in a $500 billion market cap swing on a fake image.
It then rebounded once the image was… pic.twitter.com/DpHgflkMXP

The scare is the latest example of the global damages and repercussions that can occur due to artificial intelligence. The Post gives additional examples: “Previously, social media users were tricked by viral AI-generated images of Pope Francis wearing a Balenciaga puffer jacket and of former President Donald Trump clashing with the NYPD while being arrested.”
@PFPAOfficial and the ACFD are aware of a social media report circulating online about an explosion near the Pentagon. There is NO explosion or incident taking place at or near the Pentagon reservation, and there is no immediate danger or hazards to the public. pic.twitter.com/uznY0s7deL

“At the house, the daughter was directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity,” the press release stated.”
