It is tough for female sports journalists.
It is hard to break into the industry and then when you do, you have to fight the stereotypes of being a groupie or not knowing sports because you are a girl.
It doesn’t help when strippers are getting to cover the sidelines of NFL games just because they gave lap dances to Cory Booker.
I want to set up a pole behind the @Giants bench and get the crowd going with pole tricks during timeouts and other breaks!!!!

During the no-contest race Booker ran against GOP sacrificial lamb Steve Lonegan this past fall, it was revealed he had a very public Twitter relationship with Portland-based exotic dancer, Lynsie Lee. The relationship lead many, given Booker’s digital acumen, to scratch their heads.
She is apparently a correspondent today for NJ’s version of political TMZ, Chasing New Jersey, and her first assignment seems to covering the G-Men at MetLife Stadium. By “covering,” I mean “bouncing around giddily” and Tweeting in the press box.
She is very professional isn’t she?
Good to know all the hard work a lot of women do in the field of journalism is being ignore so Lee can get a press pass.
