    That was a little bit tongue-in-cheek in my part. But Leach is reaping the benefits of all this through book sales.

    Yeah bad lead by pearls ruins the rest.

    Fox News can't be all bad. They made Juan Williams whole after he was wrongly dumped by PBS.

    If it was Erin Andrews involved, ESPN would be pushing the book every 15 minutes on every show it has ...

    Since ESPN is a sports book publisher I am surprised that they did not want to do this book.

    I wonder if Feldman had to give them first right of refusal and they turned down.

    Certainly would have been interesting had they bought the book.

    Not too many folks can say they were the subject of a Twitter movement.

    But seriously, this sucks. Feldman deserves another employer.

    Feldman will be unemployed for the length of his non-compete and then hired the next day.

    ESPN: "Pay No Attention To That Man Behind The Curtain!"

    http://www.espnmediazone3.com/us/2011/07/15/espn-statement-regarding-bruce-feldman/

    "There was never any suspension or any other form of disciplinary action. We took the time to review his upcoming work assignments in light of the book to which he contributed and will manage any conflicts or other issues as needed. Bruce has resumed his assignments."

    Incredible backpedaling by the Mouse. If there was no suspension, then why use the word "resume"?

    Honest question: Do PR people churn up bullshit like this thinking people will actually believe it? Or do they sit down and write cover-our-ass releases like this and know that 85 percent of the population knows that they're being lied to?

    I really want to know.

    Now here's hoping the next thing Feldman writes is a resignation letter.
