Dailymail - He’s made his name with a controversial show that catches would-be internet sex perverts in televised stings. But now Chris Hansen has found himself on the receiving end of his own hidden camera tactics, after the married NBC anchor was secretly filmed on an illicit date with a blonde television reporter 20 years his junior. Hansen, 51, has allegedly been having an affair with Kristyn Caddell, a 30-year-old Florida journalist, for the last four months. Last weekend he was recorded taking Miss Caddell on a romantic dinner at the exclusive Ritz-Carlton hotel in Manalapan, before spending the night at her Palm Beach apartment. Hansen, who has two young sons, was caught in an undercover sting operation arranged by the National Enquirer. The Enquirer’s sting took place last weekend, and recorded the pair as they went for dinner at the Ritz-Carlton’s Angle restaurant on Friday at about 7pm.

Well I guess you live by the sword you die by the sword.   I’d be lying if I said I’m not looking forward to watching this video more than any single thing I’ve ever watched in my life. I don’t really know why either. It’s not even that I hate Chris Hanson. It’s just that he’s such a smug son of a bitch whenever he catches people on his show. I can’t wait to see how he reacts when the shoe is on the other foot. I hope they do it the same exact way he does it. Make him sit down and sweat it out. Do you know who I am Chris? Do you know why I’m here? What were you doing with that bottle of Vodka? Why are you here? What were you planning to do? Does your family know? You’re free to go if you want. I’m not a cop. And then they just tackle the shit out of him when he leaves the hotel. Oh this is going to be awesome. I’m so excited I don’t even care that this sets a really bad precedent for turning the tables on people who make a living embarrassing other people.

PS – The National Enquirer does sting operations now? Fucking who knew? Maybe the Stool will end up being CNN after all.
