NY Post Reporters Banned From Appearing on ESPN Because of Nude Photo Flap

Jul 23, 2009  •  Post A Comment

ESPN banned NY Post reporters from appearing on the network after the newspaper published photos, taken from a surreptitiously shot video, which showed ESPN sideline reporter Erin Andrews nude in a hotel room, the Associated Press says.

Three images taken from the voyeuristic video were published in the tabloid on Tuesday.  The photos were printed–and displayed on the Post’s website–with bars covering some of Andrews’ body.

ESPN senior vice president of communications Chris LaPlaca said in a statement: “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.”

Andrews has said she plans to file charges once the person who shot the video is discovered.
