Sydney Leathers Ditching Porn in Favor of Journalism?

What did “Big John” expect? The owner of a Hell’s Kitchen nightclub where Sydney Leathers hosted a Tuesday night soiree to coincide with the first NYC Democratic candidates mayoral debate told the New York Daily News she was a lukewarm hostess. Instead of mingling, she spent most of the night on her phone, texting. Dude, that’s what she does.


But soon, Leathers may be introducing herself to politicians as a journalist. Following an interview with Sean Hannity, she spoke to FOX 411. Leathers confirmed the Vivid porn film is officially off and that she may instead pick up on some fledgling radio beginnings:

“I volunteered with a radio service for eight years. It was a program called the Radio Information Service. Mostly just news broadcasts, all for blind and print handicapped people. There are some talks of me co-hosting a radio show; maybe some political blogging.”

TPM Tirade Tops Off Epic Tuesday Weiner Media Roast

On a day that began with a New York Daily News Weiner intern expose, continued with a Howard Stern-Sydney Leathers shock interview and ended with a defiant Anthony Weiner campaign video, there is still more. The coup de (dis)grace, as it were, delivered by Talking Points Memo national affairs writer Hunter Walker.

Weiner’s director of communications Barbara Morgan went off the media deep end during her conversation with Walker, calling the author of that aforementioned NYDN expose every name in the book. She quickly apologized and told The Observer‘s Jill Colvin she thought that part of the conversation was off the record. But TPM editor-publisher Josh Marshall is backing up Walker all the way and, regardless, it would seem that Weiner’s campaign is now really cooked. From Walker’s bombshell report:

“I’m dealing with like stupid f*cking interns who make it on to the cover of the Daily News even though they signed NDAs and/or they proceeded to trash me,” Morgan told TPM, referring to a non-disclosure agreement. “And by the way, I tried to fire her, but she begged to come back and I gave her a second chance.”
