Porn Industry Asking for TART Money

Posted in Politics tagged , , at 9:59 pm by mj

And why not?:

Joe Francis, creator of the “Girl’s Gone Wild” video series, and Larry Flynt, founder of Hustler, will ask Congress for a $5 billion bailout, according to TMZ.

Why does the porn industry need a bailout? Because apparently even porn is getting smacked by the recession.

XXX DVD sales have taken a hit – about a 22% hit, according to TMZ.

I’m sure Larry Flynt is making a political statement, and his cohort, Joe Francis (Girls Gone Wild, etc.) is just the sort of self-aggrandizing, profiteering nitwit to play the part and guarantee success.

I don’t know which would be sadder. If they’re actually granted the money, or if they’re not. Either way, the political statement will fly over everybody’s head.

    ah, c’mon, francis is nowhere near the level that flynt’s on. flynt’s an entrepreneur and runs an empire. francis roophies sorostitutes that put on the show(s), regardless of his presence and/or a camera’s.

    so did they get it? i could google it, but i’m lazy!
