 INTEGRITY: Journalism and Sports
(Photo by Al Messerschmidt

I am shocked at the reaction to the Erin Andrews issue swirling around the media.

At this point I would like to take a moment and VERY PUBLICLY say THANK YOU to all of the men who are defending Ms. Andrews. You are truly her, and our Champions for a cause we cannot fight by ourselves. It will take working together to accomplish that goal. We appreciate all of your votes of confidence.

Back to the story at hand, there are many articles and comments swirling around in the media in reference to Erin Andrews that are invalid.

Yes, she was named by Playboy as America's Sexiest Sportscaster for 2007 and 2008. She was also hired by EA Sports to commentate their March Madness 2008 basketball video game, as well as appearing on their NCAA Football '10 providing sideline updates.

To insinuate that she had any responsibility what so ever is frankly irresponsible journalism.
The impression for some is, that women can be smart OR attractive. We are saying,"We can be both"

As far as I recall, Descartes’ said, "I think therefore I am", not "I think therefore I am unattractive"

And blondes are the dumb ones!
