Who Knew You Could Buy a Journalist for the Price of a Hooker?

Diogenes’ Middle Finger: A contributor to the scuzzy feminist website ‘Jezebel‘, and purportedly a self described comedian (?) Sara Benincasa, tweeted out Saturday that she would offer $300 to any journalist who asks Trump his opinion on our nation’s relations with the country of Wakanda and gets him answering on video. If you’re like me, you too have no idea where Wakanda is. Just so happens Wakanda is the name of the fictional place where the Marvel’s cartoon superhero Black Panther comes from. Um-Kay….

Granted, a story of this caliber would, in fact, be a step up from Benincasa’s usual fare know for pieces like “I am So Not Sorry About My Vagina, and Other Apologies We Should Retract.” (sorry but I don’t link to this website). In her lengthy thread on the tweeter, Benincasa encouraged others to offer monetary incentive saying she would start up a crowdfunding or Venmo thingy whereby any others who wish to thank the intrepid reporters bravery can add to the purse. Benincasa recommended that journalists who wanted to score the $300 prize could “casually drop the name of Wakanda in among a list of other things he’s never heard of, like Estonia and Ethics.” 

“I am offering $300 to the journalist who very seriously asks Trump his opinion on our nation’s relations with Wakanda and gets the question and answer recorded live on video. I know $300 doesn’t sound like a lot to some people but I also know what most reporters make so…$300. @SaraJBenincasa.     Read more

  2. Being a long time Marvel Comics reader in my youth, I knew about Wakanda, sole source of the metal vibranium, which makes Cap A’s shield.
    And if my info is outdated, it’s because I stopped reading comics decades ago.

  3. it appears that there is very little difference between a hooker and a journalist. There are some things that a hooker will not do.

  4. Urinalist is the preferred word for some anti Trump reporters. Journalism suggests a hint of decency and competence in preparing your report.
