Someone needs to tell Wendy McCaw that they canceled the soap opera Santa Barbara years ago.

In what could only make sense in a network soap, the embattled Santa Barbara News-Press publisher has allowed a story without a byline to appear on the front page of her paper, accusing her former Executive Editor, Jerry Roberts, of having thousands of images of pornography on his company computer while he worked there.

McCaw reportedly delivered Roberts' hard drive to a company called DriveSavers, who were instructed to retrieve everything they could. DriveSavers discovered a quarter million images, 15,000 of them being porn. Some of it child porn.
