  1. Dean Teagan says:

    EBSCO spreads millions around the country in the form of “awards” and “grants”. Is it hush money? EBSCO is now at the center of a nation wide scandal for its role in apparently advertising for the 95 billion dollar Porn Industry – to a target audience of K-12 school databases. EBSCO named to the 2017 Dirty Dozen list by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation and the subject of recent CBS Denver and Fox Birmingham news stories and . Under enormous community pressure, EBSCO has publicly admitted there are problems, but continues to falsely advertise it’s K-12 products as safe and “age appropriate” for school kids. EBSCO caught streaming “erotic fiction”, live links to hard core porn, articles that advertise and lead to playboy mansion, mindgeek, vivid, a myriad of ads for “sex toy shops” and the list goes on. Check out the facts – is EBSCO pimping for the Porn Industry? What would that say about the librarians and administrators who take money from them?
