Deadspin Investigation Leads to Sacking of ESPN Columnist Sarah Phillips

A great investigative piece by Deadspin’s John Koblin published late yesterday uncovered some very disturbing things about ESPN.com columnist Sarah Phillips. If the story is true, and by all accounts it seems to be, Phillips conspired to hijack the popular Facebook page NBA Memes from its owner to drive traffic to her startup site Sports Comedy Network. Koblin also alleges she borderline extorted thousands of dollars from a gambling acquaintance.

Phillips was fired by ESPN within hours of the piece’s publication.

She also tweets that she has returned proprietorship of NBA Memes to its rightful owner.

The whole story of Phillips’ deceptions is fairly complicated. Best to read the whole thing.
