former Newsday publisher busted by "Operation Predator."
Robert Johnson's suits were buttoned-down, his grooming was impeccable, and his demeanor as dignified as his Midwest upbringing might suggest.
A golfing partner recalled that Johnson never cursed like other players when he missed a shot, but cried out, "Oh Alice!" — his way of venting frustration without using an obscenity.
It was the incongruity of Johnson's upright persona and the revolting charges levied against him last week that floored his high-profile friends and associates.
Johnson, 54 — former Newsday publisher, advocate for high educational standards on the state Board of Regents, successful business executive and devoted family man — was busted in a child-pornography probe by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security called "Operation Predator."
A federal indictment unsealed Tuesday charges that Johnson used his company computer and laptop at Bowne & Co., a Manhattan financial-services firm, to download huge quantities of child pornography. Films included "Real Child Rape."
