"Erin Andrews Peephole Tape Video Watch" - still on TOP
chuvachienes on Featured, Random Musings, Sports
It's been several days already since the news broke out about a Sports caster and a blogger named Erin Andrews when a video of her was taken au naturel without her knowledge through a peephole in a hotel room. Today, it still tops Google Trends. What is wrong with this picture? Either people haven't seen a naked lady before or they are simply obsessed with celebrities.
I read the other day that Erin had to call 911 because someone was knocking at her door at 2 a.m. in the morning and wouldn't leave. The video may have spawned stalkers as well which would scare the living heck out of me if I was her. It turns out that it was a media representative wanting to interview Erin Andrews.
The weird thing is that major networks are reporting the news and shows still shots of the tape. I mean, come on people! Erin Andrews and her lawyers fought very hard to keep the video off the internet and they were successful. They threatened to sue anyone who participates in spreading the video. Yet, you turn on the television and there you have it.
I think that the person who made the video must be prosecuted. This is more than in invasion of privacy situation. This is a criminal act. I guess "Erin Andrews Peephole Tape Video Watch" will still be in "volcanic" status on Google Trends for a bit.
To anyone who's looking for the video, be careful. Lots and lots of links are being provided over the internet but they are nothing but links to malicious malwares and viruses.

At 3 p.m. Thursday, the most searched item on Google was "Michelle Beisner."
Who? Turns out she is an attractive young woman who happened to be mentioned in a FoxSports column about . . . what else? Erin Andrews.
Andrews' weeklong domination of the Google Trends list was both disturbing and fascinating to behold, and will provide material for media professors for years.
But other than unearthing the story behind the notorious videotape of her, there is not much left to this story once the ongoing ogling finally winds down.
The only good to come of it has been some interesting commentary and introspection amid all the knee-jerk bloviating.
Among the best was a column by Viv Bernstein on True/Slant that gets to the heart of the matter: That women continue inevitably to be viewed by men through the prism of their looks.
Andrews is "punished for being pretty" while Bernstein is "punished for not being pretty," she wrote, adding, "It's 2009. Why are women still being treated like this?"

Viewers May Pay a Price for Searching for Erin Andrews Videotape
This really shouldn't take long. I found a great source article on Erin Andrews, a sports reporter for ESPN. Erin Andrews was videotaped nude in her hotel room.
James Hamilton has posted an article on The Examiner titled "Erin Andrews deserves privacy in her workplace."
Erin Andrews was on the road on a sports assignment when she was videotaped by some creep while she combed her hair without clothes. Of course it was soon posted on the
Erin Andrews Getting Rude Treatment on Internet
Andrews, with the help of her lawyer and ESPN is fighting back and will do everything possible to track the person down who did this.
However some justice is being meted out inadvertently.
There are a number of sites where if you visit them you will get a virus or some other dread disease.
And that is only right because as Hamilton says. While one or two people took the video, they wouldn't get any money or attention if people didn't look at the video.
Some people don't think there is anything wrong looking at other people for the sake of making them an "object." Most of us don't think it is right however, no matter how much we are told otherwise.
It is easy to rationalize looking at filthy videos because you can always tell yourself people in them wanted to be in them and also got paid.
But, Erin Andrews didn't get paid for "posing." Her privacy was stolen.
How would you feel if this happened to your wife, mother, sister or daughter? You wouldn't be happy. And yet Andrews means something to certain people.
Sex sites are at the root of sexual addictions that ruin families and individual lives.
People with these addictions are taken in by phone sites and websites and with pornographic movies.
The reason that I used this particular reference site is because Mr. Hamilton "says it right."
Whatever you may think about any topic with respect to this area, it is wrong to subject people to this type of terrible treatment.
Further as Hamilton points out when considering our children: "It's wrong!"
