The NBA Finals Inspiring Local Horndogs to Look for Heat-Related Sex Online

Categories: Media Watch

Two years ago, local porn stars Angelina Castro and Sara Jay offered blowjobs to fans if the Heat won.
It's the playoffs. Three-peat. LeBronmania. Whatever: For horndog Miamians, the Heat games are also, apparently, the perfect opportunity to ask strangers to watch basketball. Or, you know, "watch basketball."

On Craigslist, more than 30 posts from the past couple of weeks specifically mention Heat games in personal posts soliciting sex. It's not the first time the NBA Finals have set hormones raging in the Magic City. Who could forget the 2012 finals, when two South Florida porn stars made a promise: If the Heat won the series, the two women would give free blowjobs to any fans who met a few stipulations.

When it comes to journalism TMZ is a master at getting a juicy scoop and jokers at just about everything else.

Today Miami Beach Police released the first video of Justin Bieber taking a urine test. It's from a weird angle where you can barely make out whats happening. TMZ of course promptly wrote it up, and then in a moment of bizarre dissonance chided MBPD for turning into the Bieber arrest into a reality show.

Categories: Media Watch

The Miami Beach Police Department today released photos that officers took to document Justin Bieber's various tattoos, which include pictures of the popstar shirtless (because lord knows no one has ever seen that before). The release came just hours after a hearing was set in Miami-Dade Court to decide whether videos of Bieber providing a urine sample will be released as well.

Never have we had such conflicting feelings of "Hell yeah! Freedom of the press!" and "But, wait this is kind of icky and silly" before.

Update: A Miami-Dade judge ruled that indeed the media will get its hand on the video of Bieber providing a urine sample in the coming days. However, images of his penis will be censored.

"He has not lost his expectation of dignity, and that's what's most important here," he said.

Whether or not anyone else lost their dignity by fighting for this video is up to you to decide.

Thumbnail image for bieber-mug.jpg
A Miami-Dade judge tried to get the long and short of whether or not images of Justin Bieber's Bieber-hood should be released to the media today.

Lawyers for outlets including the Miami Herald, the Sun-Sentinel, the Associated Press, and CNN argued that under Florida law, surveillance footage of Justin Bieber in a Miami Beach police station last month following his DUI arrest should be made public. Bieber's attorneys however believe that because of Bieber's right to privacy certain portions of those tapes, including images of Bieber peeing into a cup for a drug test, should be withheld.

The Miami Herald Really Wants to See Video of Justin Bieber Peeing at a Police Station

In one corner we have the media and Florida's notoriously progressive open record laws. In the other we have diminutive pop mischief maker Justin Bieber.

The media, of course, had a field day when Bieber was arrested last month for supposedly drag racing while high down a Miami Beach residential street, but they haven't had enough of him yet. They want more video. Specifically video of Bieber in custody, which the Miami Herald's attorney says should be made public. However, the Bieb's defense team has filed an injection hoping to block the release of any more video.

Miami Springs Reporter Shares Wife in Sex Scandal, Judge Bans Him From Beat (NSFW)

Straight out of the romance novel section of Barnes & Noble, no?
Wally Clark swears it was a million-dollar idea. The bespectacled man with big ears, a bald head, and a trim figure scrolls through the 10,000 pornographic snapshots he took of his wife cavorting with his best friend. Sure, Clark had nudged the two of them together — but it was only supposed to be so they could all get rich peddling erotic images. His wife and his buddy weren't supposed to run off together.

On a recent Thursday, inside a one-bedroom bachelor pad cluttered with papers, the six-foot-two Hialeah High graduate is revisiting what he calls the happiest five years of his life. A photography studio occupies a back room, and a flame-painted PT Cruiser sits in the driveway. "My wife was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen," he says with a wistful glint in his paralyzed left eye, "until she became a professional liar."
