Reporter Tries to Trap Fox News Star in Sex Scandal. She Never Expected This.
The Daily Caller's Amber Athey reports:
Kate Aurthur, BuzzFeed News’ chief Los Angeles correspondent, shared a photo of Carlson that she found on a female sex worker’s Twitter account. The sex worker, Christina Parreira, appears to be kissing Carlson on the cheek as he laughs and pulls away.
Parreira was clearly excited to meet The Daily Caller co-founder, as she posted the photo with the caption, “#NewProfilePic TUCK!!!”
Aurthur, however, used the photo to smear Carlson and suggest he is not the champion of family values that he claims to be.
Remember @tuckercarlson's lecture during the height of family separation in June about how the left doesn't care about family values? Well, I'm not one to kink shame, but here he is with a sex worker. Go Tucker? pic.twitter.com/B4qfAD9RTB— Kate Aurthur (@KateAurthur) February 23, 2019
Aurthur’s tweet was met with immediate backlash and the helpful photographer who snapped the picture, Mitchell Sunderland, revealed that it was taken at a funeral. Sunderland also noted that there was no way Carlson could’ve known that Parreira is a sex worker.
Sunderland further explained the context behind her photograph. "I took that photo at… a funeral. Christina didn’t even tell Carlson her profession. All anyone spoke about that night was our dead mutual friend. It was the most PG-rated night in Nevada history."

It’s been unreal to wake up and see someone take a photo I took at my dear friend Dennis Hof’s funeral and use it to smear a sex worker in the name of wokeness. Carlson didn’t even know Christina had worked as a hooker, and Christina didn’t even discuss politics with him https://t.co/NLgsgH4ckp— Mitchell Sunderland (@mitchsunderland) February 23, 2019
The sex worker in question, Christina Parreira, also chastised Aurthur for her rush to judgment, before the BuzzFeed News reporter blocked Parreira – putting her liberal intolerance on full display.
I'm answering you once, and then blocking you and muting the thread, for obvious reasons. Tucker Carlson preaches prescriptive morality on his show about family values in the most toxic, destructive, high-handed way, leaving no room for anyone to deviate. He is poison.— Kate Aurthur (@KateAurthur) February 23, 2019
