Whorespondent or Whorrespondent (whore + correspondent)

"Whorespondent” or “whorrespondent” (whore + correspondent) is a term used by people who don’t have much faith in news correspondents. “The Communists of the Old Left, of course, have traditionally regarded reporters as ‘presstitutes’ or ‘whorespondents’” was printed in the book The Center: The Anatomy of Power in Washington (1968) by Stewart Alsop.

“Whorespondent” has frequently been used with the term “presstitute” (press + prostitute).


Wikipedia: Correspondent
A correspondent or on-the-scene reporter is usually a journalist or commentator for magazines, or more speaking, an agent who contributes reports to a newspaper, or radio or television news, or another type of company, from a remote, often distant, location. A foreign correspondent is stationed in a foreign country. The term correspondent refers to the original practice of filing news reports via postal letter. The largest networks of correspondents belong to ARD (Germany) and BBC (UK).

Whorespondent, presstitute, etc. (self.Libertarian)

Hey, I’ve been seeing these around. People keep defending their use by saying “Men can be whorespondents too!”, but I’ve only seen these words used in posts featuring female corporate-crony-journalists (though I understand I may have missed posts with males). Just keep in mind that things like this make any point you try to make less convincing to most people. Sure, there is a time for circlejerking among like-minded allies, but I have a theory that r/Libertarian is getting more curious traffic than usual right now from potential future non-ideologues, and you want to win people over, not alienate them.
