Blogosphere's Erin Andrews obsession crosses line

To this point, the blogosphere's endless fascination with Erin Andrews mostly has been harmless, semi-wholesome fun.

But that changed this week with the surfacing of video somehow taken of Ms. Andrews through a hotel peephole, when she was in a state of extreme undress.

Not cool. The video has been deleted from most sites by now, but not all.

Via PRNewsire:

With respect to recent Internet postings of Erin Andrews, she has authorized her attorney, Marshall B. Grossman of Bingham McCutchen LLP, to issue the following statement:

"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."

"a state of extreme undress?"

Holy cow, Neil. I love ya, but, man, why use five words when one will do?

Slime. I hope I never stumble across this filthy video. Can you please tell me where it is so I can avoid it? But if someday Ms Andrews decides to pose for Playboy like her fellow sports journalist Lisa Guerrero did, you will find me waiting for the newsstand to open.

The guy who took them is a jerk and even more so for posting them publicly. I hope Erin and ESPN take this guy to the cleaners.

Don't you love how Deadspin now claims that they were just going meta on Erin Andrews all this time? "We weren't actually exploiting here, we were just exploiting the exploitation of her." If Deadspin cut out all the Erin Andrews/dirty cheerleader entries, they'd have the hit count of the Hobby Horse Collector's site. What frauds.
