Howard Stern Prank Calls ESPN

February 24, 2010

While ESPN has become the worldwide leader in sexual harassment lawsuits, college football coverage, and Barry Melrose cameos, the network still hasn’t worked out their issues with fact checking and call screening. Just ask Howard Stern – who successfully had his prostate referenced in the middle of Sportscenter by a man pretending to be NFL star Brian Westbrook.

ESPN Anchor Scott Van Pelt could not have been more excited to speak with the recently released Philadelphia Eagles running back. And one day, he may get the chance to do so.

In the meantime, however, he did have the opportunity to be humiliated in front of millions of people without getting sued for copyright infringement by the contestants of The Bachelor, who have tried to patent “televised embarrassment” for years.
