ESPN Bans New York Post Reporters for Graphic Photos of Reporter Erin Andrews

After the New York Post published the peephole nude photos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews, ESPN retaliated by banning New York Post reporters from all ESPN outlets. Wow. Suddenly I am an ESPN fan.

If you missed the story, ESPN reporter Erin Anderson was filmed naked by a creepy Peeping Tom through a peephole in 2 hotel rooms. ESPN has promised legal action against any media outlet that publishes the material.

"In light of the New York Post's decision to run graphic photos of ESPN reporter Erin Andrews, we have decided to stop utilizing Post reporters on any of our outlets," ESPN's senior VP of communications, Chris LaPlaca said.

"Erin was grievously wronged here, and while we understand the Post's decision to cover this as a news story, their running photos obtained in such a fashion went well beyond the boundaries of common decency in the interest of sensationalism. This is not a decision we undertook lightly, but we feel it is an appropriate one."
