(Newser) – ESPN may have banned New York Post staffers from its airwaves after the paper printed images from the Erin Andrews nude video, but the Post shot back today, blaming ESPN itself for the video coming to light. It had gone basically unnoticed since February, but that changed when ESPN demanded its removal for a website. From there it was quick work for Andrews to be identified—and her lawyer to confirm it.
