Andrews (New York) Post-Mortem

Either executives and ESPN read this blog (doubtful) or more likely the sports media giant reacted to mounting media outrage (highly likekly) against the New York Post. ESPN announced that it will not allow anyone from the Post to appear on its outlets in wake of the newspaper's publication of the Erin Andrews photos. "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,” ESPN senior vice president of communications Chris LaPlaca said in a statement Wednesday night.

The Post had no immediate reaction, but the Andrews pictures remain on the paper's website.
