ESPN Bans NY Post Reporters After Paper Publishes Erin Andrews Photos

The Erin Andrews peephole video story is old news, but still extremely popular news. Let's be honest, she's a hottie.

Since some sites are reportedly trying to slap malware on your PC if you try to view a video, many are searching for photos of Erin Andrews nude, instead. That brings us to the New York Post, which printed pictures from the peephole video recently, and has thus earned the wrath of ESPN.

ESPN has been NY Post reporters, or at least reporters involved in the posting of the Erin Andrews peephole video photos. ESPN senior vice president of communications Chris LaPlaca said in a statement Wednesday night:
"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."
The New Post published three different photos taken from the Erin Andrews peephole video.

Meanwhile, the search for the original poster of the video continues. Erin Andrews' attorneys made this statement previously (perhaps a mistake since it confirmed the validity of the peephole video):

"While alone in the privacy of her hotel room, Erin Andrews was surreptitiously videotaped without her knowledge or consent. She was the victim of a crime and is taking action to protect herself and help ensure that others are not similarly violated in the future. Although the perpetrator or perpetrators of this criminal act have not yet been identified, when they are identified she intends to bring both civil and criminal charges against them and against anyone who has published the material. We request respect of Erin's privacy at this time, while she and her representatives are working with the authorities."
You can see the other two Erin Andrews peephole video photos at the NY Post story linked above; we have attached one.
