NEW YORK - Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer is back in the media, this time as a member of the Fourth Estate.

On Wednesday evening, the online magazine Slate quietly posted Spitzer's first column, headlined "Too Big Not To Fail." It argued against costly economic government bailouts to huge financial institutions.

Jacob Weinberg, the editor-in-chief of the Slate Group, owned by the Washington Post Co., says the semimonthly column will focus on the financial crisis, regulation and government.

Spitzer resigned earlier this year after getting caught in a prostitution scandal. Last month, federal prosecutors announced they would not bring criminal charges against him.
