Don Lemon, a news anchor on CNN, chose a live discussion on the sex scandal surrounding Bishop Eddie Long to reveal on Saturday that he had been sexually abused as a child.

"I have never admitted this on television," Lemon told three members of Long's church. "I am a victim of a pedophile when I was a kid. Someone who was much older than me."

Lemon then continued talking about the cloud of suspicion surrounding Bishop Long, the megachurch pastor who is accused of abusing several male teenagers that attend his congregation, the New Birth Missionary Baptist Church near Atlanta.
