Live From the Courtroom: “Legal Reporter” Meghann Cuniff Has Ludicrously Bad Judgment

It’s a dusty old truism: “If you lie down with dogs, you will get up with fleas.”

Meghann M. Cuniff, self-styled “independent legal affairs reporter,” has fleas.

She contracted them the moment she fastened her fate to unemployed hate blogger and child sex trafficking advocate Tony Ortega.

Years ago, Ortega found fleeting employment at a job that harnessed his hatred of all things decent: editor-in-chief of The Village Voice, which owned and was funded by, the world’s largest online marketplace for child sex trafficking—seized by the FBI in 2018 with its executives convicted late last year. Ortega’s job description was to preserve, protect and defend—LOUDLY—the criminal activities of the goons at Backpage, which he did with frothing gusto. So frantic were Ortega’s howls against any criticism of his bosses’ atrocities that The New York Times dubbed him the sex trafficking site’s “attack dog.”

This is now, apparently, Meghann M. Cuniff’s BFF, as she proudly announced to her followers.

Meghann Cuniff is in bed with a child sex trafficking advocate.

But Meghann has her own experience with sex traffickers and sex trafficking. Namely, in 2022, she covered the trial of sex trafficking pimp Ariel Guizar-Cuellar.

What did Meghann learn about Tony Ortega’s favorite spectator sport? What did she write? Let’s read it together, and let’s compare it with Ortega’s slant on the same subject:

Cuniff reported: “A convicted pimp who admitted to trafficking three teenage girls through routine assaults, cruel taunting and forced drug use is to spend 38 years in prison.”

Ortega reported: Child sex trafficking is a “national fantasy.”

Cuniff reported: “One victim identified in court documents as J.B. was a 15-year-old high school student when she met Guizar-Cuellar through Instagram. She wrote in a statement quoted by prosecutors that the defendants ‘manipulated our minds and stole our childhood. We were just kids, most of us came from broken homes or no homes at all, they offered us a chance at more money than we would ever have a chance to have, expensive clothes, purses, jewelry, and we were able to act like we were grown,’ J.B. wrote. ‘We had no business acting like we were grown, we were kids, babies to be honest.’”

Ortega reported: “Underage prostitution is nothing like what is being trumpeted.”

Cuniff reported: “‘These victims are loved,’ prosecutors wrote in a sentencing memorandum. ‘Their mothers are devastated and enraged by the abuse of their daughters and the suffering they were helpless to prevent.’”

Ortega reported: A “nonexistent epidemic of sexual slavery.”

Cuniff reported: “One victim identified as B.M. died by suicide in June 2021, but prosecutors submitted to [Judge] Freeman letters and poems she’d written that cited ‘her trafficking, drug addiction, and Guizar-Cuellar’s violence as factors contributing to her profound sense of despair.’ Their memo quoted a poem titled Fake Smiles Beat.”

The poem: “All you see on my face is fake smiles now / Feeling like nobody really wants me around / How do I make this feelin go away / Please give me a reason I should stay / I’m getting high nonstop every fuckin day / Trying to be numb but I still feel the pain / I’m losing.”

Ortega reported: Sex trafficking is a “small problem.”

Meghann Cuniff, the writer of a piece on the meting out of justice to a beast who tortured and trafficked defenseless girls, Meghann Cuniff who has seen the face of evil in a courtroom and heard the anguished testimony of his victims—yes that Meghann Cuniff—is now in cheery cahoots with sex trafficking fanboy and creepy stalker Tony Ortega. “Always happy to be on courthouse front lines for Tony Ortega,” she gleefully tweets.

In other words, Meghann Cuniff is in bed with a child sex trafficking advocate.

Do you think so little of your career, Meghann?

Do you think so little of your readers?

Do you think so little—period?

3.3 million child victims cry, “I object, Meghann.”
