If I were an ESPN exec or employee, and I read the latest post by Daulerio over at Deadspin, I’d be shaking in my boots a little right now. Excerpt after the jump.

“However, there are many, many, many other people employed at the WWL who have (allegedly) boned assistants, interns, on-air talent, executives, etc…Chances are, at this point, there’s some truth to them…We’ll just throw ’em out there and see how many “no comments” or, you know, actual comments or “you would be completely wrongs” there are about these situations.

Update: And the Deadspin-ESPN bridge burning continues. This one deals with a female marketing exec and how she purportedly slept her way to the top.
