New York Anchor Caught Allegedly Meeting Underage Boy for Sex

New York Anchor Caught Allegedly Meeting Underage Boy for Sex

Zach Wheeler, an anchor for an NBC affiliate in upstate New York, denied the allegations and pulled the gay card.

New York group 607 Predator Hunters, a group that tries to nab pedophiles, caught a TV anchor allegedly trying to meet a 15-year-old boy for sex.

Zach Wheeler, an anchor for NBC affiliate WETM, denied the accusations:

“Sunday evening around 5 p.m., Zach came to meet what he thought was a 15 year old boy,” the narrator begins. “Shocked upon our team’s arrival, we followed up with some questions to find out exactly what his intentions were.”

The man identified as Wheeler, wearing an untucked pink Oxford shirt, shorts and sunglasses, is confronted by 607 Predators crew, and then agrees to step outside to talk, all the while denying he is there for nefarious reasons.

“That’s not what the chat logs say,” a crew member interjects.

“I thought the kid was 18,” Wheeler pleads. “I wasn’t looking to have sex.”

Wheeler then says he was working on a story about the dangers of online predators.

“I wasn’t even going to come here, because I knew it was you guys,” he claims, before saying he was working on a story about the dangers of online predators.

When those attempts fall flat, Wheeler accuses the crew of trying to “cancel” him and asks if they are here to “ruin people’s lives.”

Ah, yes. Pull the gay card:

“Why do you guys do this to gay and lesbian people,” he asks, with the group insisting they attempt to catch all pedophiles.

“Are you guys here to ruin people’s lives,” Wheeler asks at another point, noting that the group was going to “ruin my whole entire life” and he is “going to lose my job and everything.” At another point, Wheeler argues that the group is engaging in “cancel culture” because of his job.

WETM put Wheeler on leave. It also removed his information from the website.

New York Anchor—big enough to secure the Titanic. Or in the dark could be mistaken for the iceburg. Little boys need to look out! If you see him coming you better run.

I’m the victim here! Only a bigot would ever tell the truth about me!

Another example of a d/prog with the typical mindset of victim hood in which they blame everyone but themselves for their actions. These folks want to live in a consequence free universe:
1. Commit a crime – no bail required, weak sentence if any time at all
2. Student loan debt – too hard to pay, let the taxpayers foot the bill
3. Rent too high – no evictions and establish rent control
4. Public employee with an unsustainable pension – increase taxes to pay my bloated pension
5. Obese – everyone must get the vax x5 and wear a mask to protect me

Lots more examples of this mindset exist.

    Women getting pregnant – Allow them to have unfettered access to murder their own babies so they can keep having sex

    Drug addicts – Instead of locking them up we should legalize drugs or help them get high at our government approved drug clinics

    SALT – We’ll tax our citizens to high heaven and it’ll be okay because they can claim it as a deduction on their federal taxes and let the entire country finance the state’s debt

    This list of Democrats letting people escape the consequences of their decisions can go on forever. And our country is paying for it.

Is his nickname “Big Gay Zach”?

The entire video is even more disgusting.

He actually tries to claim that he only showed to ‘tell him not to go off with older guys’. A 4 year old could think up a more believable lie.

Then at one point the freak offers to use his news program to ‘find more predators’ as long as they let him go.

Handsome fella. Looks like he stays in good shape.
I feel bad for the Phillies pitcher with the same name who’s in for some ribbing in the clubhouse if his teammates see this story.

    I was under the impression that mega fauna had disapperared with the last ice age, but apparently global warming, along with NYC legalizing big gulp, has brought them back from the edge of extinction.

chrisboltssr | May 2, 2022 at 2:32 pm

Wouldn’t it be awesome if instead of affirming gays and lesbians actual psychologists and psychiatrists started to research into whether men and women becoming gay actually has something to do with some kind of childhood trauma? Nah, can’t have all that donor money to the Democratic Party and its diseased adjuncts dry up so quickly.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to chrisboltssr. | May 2, 2022 at 3:20 pm

    I suspect mine was due to (sorry for the street language) my father being a mine-fucker. You all may laugh at the phrase “self-esteem”, but there’s something to it. The belittlement, the teasing, and not being able to do anything right, including blowing my nose or drinking a glass of water, made life a living hell. I have no idea what else it could be.

    And, before any of you say I have some sort of a suppressed memory of being mistreated by a teacher, or some other such thing, forget it. I have gone through my mind over and over and over again, and can come up with nothing. And please, do not suggest counseling. Counseling in my experience is a little more than a fraud.

      henrybowman in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | May 2, 2022 at 3:29 pm

      I assume that should have been “mind-.” I’m unable to find the other slang phrase anywhere on the web without a comma in it. It must be pure hell to have a parent like that.

      Are your medical symptoms receding at all?

        The Gentle Grizzly in reply to henrybowman. | May 2, 2022 at 3:34 pm

        Mind. Not mine. As I refer to a now, for a man who was straight, my father was the biggest drama queen that ever walked the face of the earth.

        As for my present medical situation, thank you for asking. My fever is still going up just a bit, but for most of today has been in the normal range. By that I don’t mean 98.6, I’m in my normal range of about 97.5. I think I am on the mend.

    Indeed. For men sexually abused as children or adults, MaleSurvivor.org has resources to help.

    It wasn’t your fault; you can improve.

    daniel_ream in reply to chrisboltssr. | May 2, 2022 at 9:43 pm

    The CDC’s stats are that 80% of self-identified gay men and 90%+ of lesbians were sexually assaulted as minors. Correlation isn’t causation, but when I see that much smoke I expect a fire in the vicinity.

Rupert Smedley Hepplewhite | May 2, 2022 at 2:33 pm

The gay community needs to step up and start censoring these pedos. We always hear how being gay doesn’t mean they want to have sex with children; evidently, they do.

    They won’t because having sex with kids has always been the goal.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to chrisboltssr. | May 2, 2022 at 3:23 pm

      Not at all. We leave that up to clergy.

        chrisboltssr in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | May 2, 2022 at 3:28 pm

        Abd yet I’m seeing so much sexualizing of children by LGBT and their allies, yeah?

          The Gentle Grizzly in reply to chrisboltssr. | May 2, 2022 at 3:35 pm

          My point was the finger-pointing is easy. Yes, the clergy does have pedophiles. But, how many little kids just to be vicious, have claimed to be attacked by their local minister, priest, rabbi, or whoever? Don’t buy into everything you hear.

        Milwaukee in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | May 2, 2022 at 5:22 pm

        “Not at all. We leave that up to clergy.”

        Cheap shot. While that happens, they are not the only ones. Teachers and coaches, for example. Seems in Wisconsin the statue of limitations for lawsuits involving clergy were up until age 35, while for teachers the statue was age 19, of the victim.

        However, let’s drag everything out. Identify all perpetrators and expose all of them to the light.

        The Catholic Church still has not done an examination of the life and times of Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick. Who helped him up the ladder to becoming a cardinal, and who were the beneficiaries of his generosity as he gained power. His proclivities must have been obvious to supervisors and associates as he went from seminary to priesthood to bishop to cardinal.

        Previously I taught high school in Wisconsin. My daughter attended the same school. She played soccer two years, 9th and 10th grades, varsity. New coach for 10th grade, and he was a jerk. She quit and subsequently the coach was odd. First he took a year off from teaching, but not coaching, for “professional development”. Then, he just coached. Seems he was sleeping with the players and favoring some with starting time for sexual favors. He did go to prison for this. Prosecutors did say there were other victims, but the statue of limitations had run out. My guess is there were suspicions of parents and administrators, but nothing was said.

          “The Catholic Church still has not done an examination of the life and times of Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick.”

          I have heard good Catholics talk about this very subject. The last time I was in a conversation with them they were talking about how the previous Pope removed him from authority, and the current Pope reinstated him. This had them furious. I would be furious also if something similar happened in my church.

          The Boy Scout Youth Protection Training has some seriously wild stuff in it – things I would have never thought happened in Scouts. Apparently it did/does. And yet the National Council has allowed gay leaders and now gay scouts. But sex – any sex – has no place in Scouts at all. They are destroying a good organization from within.

        “But, how many little kids just to be vicious, have claimed to be attacked by their local minister, priest, rabbi, or whoever? Don’t buy into everything you hear.”

        Trivia time: how many children have died from poisoned Halloween candy? One, and he was poisoned by his father for the insurance. The State of Texas subsequently terminated the father. But lots of older citizens have been tormented by young people telling lies.

        We have terrorized children with “stranger danger” when the most likely source of abuse is family, friends, or neighbors.

          Everyone is a potential danger. Mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, neighbors, teachers,coaches, priests, cousins, grandfathers, aunts, uncles. You name it, it’s a possibility.

      In my experience with homosexuals/transsexuals, it’s a very mixed bag. Some are interested in kids, and some aren’t actually interested in ANYONE.

      Very mixed bag.

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Rupert Smedley Hepplewhite. | May 2, 2022 at 3:16 pm

    @Rupert Smedley Hepplewhite, fuck you and the horse you rode in on. You could also plausibly say, “The straight community needs to step up and start censoring these pedos. We always hear how being straight doesn’t mean they want to have sex with children; evidently, they do.”

    So fuck you and your goddamn idea that Gay= Pedo. It doesn’t. And never has.

      chrisboltssr in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | May 2, 2022 at 3:30 pm

      The entire point of the Parental Rights In Education Bill was to censor pedos of all stripes, yet it is the gay community and allies who immediately took offense at the bill and lied about it. Why is that?

        The Gentle Grizzly in reply to chrisboltssr. | May 2, 2022 at 3:37 pm

        I have no idea. I am homosexual, but I am not a part of what is called “the gay community”.

        It’s like not every Christian some fire and brimstone Bible pounder. Not every Jew is some liberal that will vote for their own demise, like voting for gun control or the candidates that support it.

          chrisboltssr in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | May 2, 2022 at 4:24 pm

          Except you are part of it whether you like it or not. I’m black and when BLM goes around wrecking shit I condemn that nonsense because it reflects poorly on all blacks.

          And it’s interesting you always keep going back to denigrating Christians, which is a common trope among gays and their allies. I’m not Christian, but they’re not ones out there taking offense at a bill which tells nasty adults to stop abusing their position to talk to other people’s kids about sexual issues. All those people outing themselves on Tik Tok talking to kids about their sexual predilection aren’t Christian Bible Thumpers. And besides if given the choice which country would you rather have, the country where you have Christians preaching the gospel to you or the one we have now where if you disagree with the LGBT movement you van potentially lose your job at minimum?

          Can’t reply to chrisboltssr below due to nesting, but I’ll say this: as an “atheist”, I’d rather be an atheist living in a Christian country than a Christian living in an atheist one.

        Lucifer Morningstar in reply to chrisboltssr. | May 3, 2022 at 9:06 am

        I have no idea why the gay community took offense and challenged the Parental Rights In Education Bill. You’d have to ask them what their motivations were for doing so.

      henrybowman in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | May 2, 2022 at 3:35 pm

      Well, the most powerful rebuke of gay predators has to come from the gay community, as the most powerful rebuke of straight predators would have to come from the straight community, and the most powerful rebuke of Jewish gun-grabbers would have to come from the Jewish community, etc. It’s the only way to focus the disapprobation on the core issue instead of having some asshole try to confound it with “aw, they’re just homophobes/antisemites.”

        henrybowman in reply to henrybowman. | May 2, 2022 at 3:37 pm

        Wish there were an edit button. I’d go back and add who needs to rebuke BLM.
        For the record, as a white guy, I do reject Antifa, and all their pomps, and all their works.

      You may not have noticed, but when the FL Parent’s Rights Bill was debated and passed it was the left who lied and claimed it was the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. There was nothing about being gay or straight or trans in the bill. Most of the new law doesn’t even talk about sex or sexual identity. There’s simply a small section that stipulates that certain topics can not be sprung upon kids in grades K-3.

      Admittedly most of the Tik Tok videos were from “trans” and gay people who thought it was the end of the world if they couldn’t talk about their sex lives with “their kids.” Apparently they’re so desperate for “affirmation” they need to get it by abusing their authority over a captive audience of 5 – 9 y.o.s. One of the most pathetic videos I saw was from a tearful gay FL teacher who was worried he’d be fired if he discussed how he went paddle boarding with his partner over the weekend.

      OMFG! He’d have to field follow on questions about what a “partner” was. And why, he tearfully poured his heart out, he’d lose his job if he had to then explain what it meant for him to be a partner with another man.

      Oh, the humanity!

      Why, “educator,” can’t you just say, “I went paddle boarding” and leave out all the partner talk? Or, better yet, like my H.S. P.E. teacher when asked about his weekend say, “None of your business.”

      I’d have no more sympathy with a heterosexual teacher imploding over the right-wing death star threat to discuss her open marriage she and her husband had at a swinger’s weekend.

      Because, OMFG! Having piqued her students’ interest in her personal life by introducing terms that they’ve never heard before like “open marriage” and “swingers” she’d now have to suffer the horror of not being able to explain it in detail.

      Or, maybe, just be like my High School P.E. teacher and when asked say, “None of your business.”

      I think the whole thing about teachers being selfless heroes is way overrated. But I’m going to have to rethink that. I’m grateful that I went through school before learning about what sexscapades my teachers engaged in at Club Hedonism II during their summer vacation was considered a vital component of my education.

    The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Rupert Smedley Hepplewhite. | May 2, 2022 at 3:22 pm

    No we don’t, stop buying into what the preacher man told you every Sunday morning. And, yes, one of those downticks is mine.

    It’s people with your mindset that prevent me from doing volunteer work for the Y, or for the boys and girls club. I would love something to occupy my free time while I’m retired, and maybe teaching kids photography or something about ham radio is but a dream. But, all it takes is one kid to say something whether true or not and i’m ruined for life. I’m a loner, no kids, never married, so it must be him. And in the community I live in that could be fatal.

      chrisboltssr in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | May 2, 2022 at 3:32 pm

      Then find something that doesn’t involve kids. Problem solved.

        Arminius in reply to chrisboltssr. | May 2, 2022 at 5:35 pm

        That is just wrong. I’m not gay and I’d experience the same prejudice. I was a Master Training Specialist in the Navy which was considered a teaching credential in Kali as the school was accredited.

        If I had gone into education I’d have been thought a perv. There’s been for decades a huge prejudice against men going into education because it’s just WRONG for a 38 y.o. male teacher to have an affair with a 16. y.o. female student. And it is.

      Morning Sunshine in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | May 2, 2022 at 9:00 pm

      Grizz – I get what you are saying. My dad spent time in jail for abuse of a minor. We believe in change, repentance and the Atonement of Christ, so when he got counseling, changed, and started a new life, we believe him. BUT when I was pregnant with our first, we laid down some ground rules – he was NEVER to be alone with my kids. The kids could be with him if I was there or my mom. But never just him. It was not just to protect our kids – it was to protect HIM (and my brother’s ex ignored those rules with her kids, and there was a he-said/she-said situation with both sides being believable and NOT believable).

      And when my kids started doing activities, we ALWAYS protected their male teachers the same way, and recommended that they take the same precautions with their other students. Perhaps you can find a partner to do that? I suspect you would have a lot to share if you could find a way. Set strict rules – you will never text the kids directly, only to parents, or a group text; if your teaching partner cannot come, class is cancelled, PERIOD. But I also get wanting to protect yourself.

        It’s one of the reasons that the Boy Scouts required at least two leaders present at all times.
        Since I was involved with taking the boys on the long hiking trips (week to 10 days) we insisted on three in case one of us had to leave for emergency reasons.

    AnAdultInDiapers in reply to Rupert Smedley Hepplewhite. | May 2, 2022 at 5:03 pm

    Some do. I know several gay men and none of them have ever shown any predilection towards boys.

    I have known men that find 15 year old Catholic schoolgirls highly attractive. I don’t think they’re gay?

    Differentiate between normal adult impulses (finding someone that’s physically capable of procreating with you attractive), homosexuality (being attracted to people of the same sex) and trying to fuck children.

    I’m not arguing against exploring whether homosexuals have different paedophilia and pederasty rates when compared to heterosexuals but people are individuals. Don’t label them, and don’t apply group based prejudices (justified or otherwise) to the individuals.

    That takes too long. It involves dredging up his voter registration.
    Ha ha, only kidding. I’d put $20 down that I can already predict it.

Zach should put in his job application with CNN. I think they like having a few employee-pervs around.

I can’t even imagine the Beagle Boy he takes after. Though I suppose he’d take after any of them if they looked young enough.

I always thought pedos are subconsciously hateful people toward kids and by sexually abusing them they rob them of the innocence that perhaps they were deprived of. Gay, straight, trans it doesn’t matter they are hateful but too timid or squeamish to use actual physical violence on their victims.

Is that a pedophile, or is that a parade blimp?
