First: The hardworking staff is at great pains to say that this is no Kirk Minihane-esque hit on Fox Sports personality Erin Andrews. We have no idea how good she is at her job since we’ve never seen her doing it.
Second: All we know is that you can’t be a journalist and simultaneously appear in consumer-product advertising.
Exhibit Erin: This Wall Street Journal full-page ad.
Not to get technical about it, but the ad itself removes Ms. Andrews from the ranks of journalists. As does this tweet:
And then there are all those TV spots for some outfit called TruBiotics.
To recap: Erin Andrews is indeed a Television Personality. She is decidedly not a Journalist.
