ESPN passes on story about a certain ESPN reporter

ESPN has decided not to report on the Erin Andrews video story, not out of sympathy for one of its own - although there is plenty of that throughout the company this week - but because of a judgment on news value.

The network's statement:

"We debated it internally and feel that this is the appropriate thing to do. Despite the attention it's gotten, it comes down to a news value judgment. We didn''t see the news value to this story, particularly since it has no bearing on her role as an on-air reporter."
