Pay for Play


If you can pay the infamous for access, why can”t you pay the famous? That is just what the British gossip rag OK! intends to do when it hits our shores next month. It will not only pay, but it will give celebs editorial and photo control (as if “A-listers” don’t already have this!).

Most established American publications publicly disdain the practice of checkbook journalism. However, fierce competition these last few years — fueled by some very high profile weddings — brought down the walls between church & state as fast as one could say Ten Commandments in an Alabama court house.

I wonder if Elliott Spitzer would say it’s OK to pay-for-play?
