Police launched a secret investigation after receiving a complaint on the matter.
It is suspected that the journalist, a Tel Aviv resident in his 30s, opened a Facebook account as a woman named Anna and held erotic online calls with minors. Police also suspect he got the minors to strip, touch themselves and send him intimidate photos of themselves.
Earlier this month, a Haifa doctor was sentenced to 18 months in prison for possession and distribution of pedophilia. More than 190,000 porn files were found on his computer and more than half of them featured children and even babies.
