ESPN.com pulls unflattering article about Lebron James
7/29/10 in NBA
ESPNLosAngeles.com reporter Arash Markazi wrote a story about Lebron James' activities in Las Vegas, complete with drinking at nightclubs and receiving a cake from go-go dancers in a VIP section. ESPN.com ran with the story for about 9 and 1/2 hours before abruptly pulling it, saying "it had been posted before it had been cleared by senior editors and that Markazi didn’t identify himself as a reporter in gathering the information used to report the story".
ESPN has taken some heat in recent weeks for catering to James and his handlers and this certainly wont help.
