The New York Post Can Make Anything About a ‘Hooker’


Children in New York City may have a few uncomfortable questions for their parents today. From the paper that told us disgustedly that Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s accuser was a prostitute comes this simultaneously “adult” and also wholly immature cover story about something as unsexy as the stock market. Leave it to the Post to mix money with misogyny (and employ Ashley Dupré as a sex columnist), especially when it has nothing to do with the accompanying article, which opts for the more innocuous roller-coaster metaphor. If your boss said something like this to you at work, not only would it be unfunny, but it might be called sexual harassment.
