The prostitute news reader

May 15th, 2008 at 11:33 pm by David Farrar

The Waikato Times has done a bit of detective work and discovered that Alt TV news reader is not just an occasionally topless girl, but in fact a prostitute.  Now the detective work wasn’t too difficult as Ms Lewis uses her own name on the escorts website.

Ms Lewis is not for the poor though. Her “full service” rate starts at $1,000 for an hour.  Hell that’s almost as much as a lawyer!

    David, I’d thankyou if you didn’t besmirch the name of prostitutes by comparing them with lawyers.

    The whole point of the “oldest profession” joke is a comparison to law, in that a professional was deemed to have done their work as a vocation and could not sue for costs- so one’s solicitor would engage counsel on one’s behalf, and be responsible for the payment to the counsel; counsel was unable in law to sue- and so too were prostitutes, although in truth, in their case it was because of the turpis causa doctrine, being that they had undertaken a base or vile act, forbidden by law, which meant that the contract was void.
    Lawyers have therefore always compared themselves to prostitutes, and I think this good; everyone needs a role model.

    I reckon Lisa’s rate is on par with what Winston “The Poodle” Peters, who charges the taxpayer similar money on his junkets around the world.

    The question to vote on is: which one of the two you would prefer to spend the night with?

    The NZF leader shouldn’t get a single vote!

    I always thought it interesting that, after the liberation of Vietnam (or fall of the American puppet government, if you like), two groups were sent to reeducation camps, reportedly. The prostitutes apparently only needed one or two weeks of reeducation, but the lawyers required more.

    Hey..if she is charging $1000 an hour then you can be sure that somebody is prepared to pay that much, it is the market at work.

    Good on her, while I might not agree morally with what she is doing at least she is not sitting on her arse waiting for a handout from the tax payer.

    BTW, on the issue, I’m in agreement with some earlier comment- she’s just another worthless lowlife whore of the kind that some small minded members of the chattering classes find newsworthy. Others might find her interesting only from the viewpoint that she perhaps symbolizes NZ society’s accelerating descent into the chasm of nihilism. Not that there’s a shortage of such symbols.

    Let’s see…

    – Appears to be a smart and very canny operator.
    – Very astute at self-publicity and promotion, and makes all sorts of claims about herself about which one ought to be skeptical.
    – Capable of holding down a “respectable” job whilst prostituting herself to a select few.
    – Brazen when caught out.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the next head of the Immigration Service!

    DPF Are you surprised, shocked, alarmed – or what – at the news that this woman is a prostitute? Are you for or agin’ it? My impression is that you think prostitution is fine but that doesn’t stop you from considering this ‘story’ newsworthy. There’s a whiff of hypocrisy here.

    Prostitution takes one more step into the mainstream. NZ slides further into the sewer.

    Mr Tim Barnett et. al., take a bow.

    Shame on you, llew. Journalists are the few people left who struggle to bring you your newspaper while being paid a pittance. This requires all sorts of skills such as intelligence, tenacity and courage (and that’s just to keep the proprietor’s hack editor from mangling your copy).

    Ms Lewis is an autocue reader, a job for which the only skills required are oral and for which the pay is immeasurably better.

    If you’re still confused, watch “All the President’s Men” followed by “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” 😀

    Oh yes, I nearly forgot the most important one: I imagine she cares too, or will do soon.
