Former Hooker Now In Employ Of News Corp

Ruupert Murdock's "news" outlets are largely populated with tabloid-style stories and "pretty-gimmicky" women anchors and pundits. So, it's no surprise that Ashley Dupree is now on the NewsCorp payroll:

Got a problem with your love life? Ask Ashley.

That would be Ashley Dupre, the former call girl whose tryst with former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer led to his resignation last year.

The New York Post has hired the 24-year-old to write a weekly advice column dealing with sex and relationships.

The column in Sunday's paper is illustrated with photos of Dupre wearing glasses and a conservative suit, along with a half-unbuttoned blouse and 6-inch heels.

One reader asks if she needs to tell her boyfriend how many men she's slept with.

Dupre's answer: "It's really none of his business (and vice versa)."

A spokesman for the Post did not answer a call seeking comment.


While the "whore for NewsCorp" joke would be far too easy to make, it should be noted that the paper that Ms. Dupre now works for isn't exactly a reputable one to begin with. But what does her new career say about Murdock's media empire and how it views the women that work within it? The answer really isn't one that you're likely to hear conservatives talk about. But considering the very real fact that charges of sexism are continually leveled by the women that work for NewsCorp against other, more reliable news agencies, it's rather ironic that they are willing to get paid by a company that seemingly only hires one type of woman.
