Suddenly the storyline in the Erin Andrews peephole video scandal has shifted from Erin to those reporting it. Why? Because there is so much misinformation out there, it’s ridiculous. The reporting of this story by the mainstream media is mediocre at best.
So let’s do a little fact versus fiction of our own here…
From Radar Online
Scandalous nude video footage of sports host Erin Andrews was probably shot by an employee of her home network ESPN, a source tells RadarOnline.com
Fiction: This lie has penetrated the mainstream media, but I can tell you that it was extremely unlikely that it was an ESPN employee. The reason I know this is because I saw all 40 videos that this creep had on his Daily Motion account. There were videos of other women in the same room. This would mean that the ESPN employee would have had to stick around for at least another day for some rest, relaxation, and privacy violating.
I have the screen caps to prove all this, and if the Don Chavez legal team gives me the go ahead, you’ll see what I mean. Bottomline, don’t believe this hype. This is just an attempt to create a new angle to a story that’s already been played out.
Four of the clips were shot in the same hotel. The remaining two were shot in a different hotel. In the first hotel, the peephole is round. In the second hotel, the peephole is jagged. The furniture in the two hotel rooms is completely different.
Again, this is just another grab for a different angle on a played out story. The videos of Erin Andrews are all from the same room. The only thing that changed is the fact that the drapery in the background appears to be open more in two of the videos. By the way, I’m working on a fancy hand drawn layout of the crime scene which I’ll post later.
From the New York Post
It’s been speculated that the video was taken in Omaha, Neb., last month while Andrews was covering the College World Series. But the local police department and US Attorney’s Office said no reports had been filed with them.
The College World Series was not too long ago, which leads me to think that Andrews would remember this particular hotel room and her camp would launch an investigation in Omaha. Since that’s not the case, and the fact that the videos were uploaded to Daily Motion as far back as February, this scenario makes no sense. If you’re going to reach for this one, you might as well include Warren Buffet in the story to try and sell more papers.
You’re probably not the actual guy who drilled a hole into the wall of her hotel room and filmed her and then put it on the Internet. But chances are, you’re among the hundreds of thousands of guys who have searched the Internet for that video. Which means you’re among the millions of American males who set this sick scenario into motion by congregating online at the altar of Erin Andrews Imagery. Objectification is yours!
Hey look at me! Over here. I’m outraged. It’s your fault Internet users, because you like to look at pictures of beautiful women on the Internet. Give me a break. This wasn’t a targeting of Erin Andrews. The guy who uploaded the videos to Daily Motion had a total of 40 videos. We’re talking about a someone is just a straight out peeping tom. It didn’t matter to him whether it was Erin Andrews or your high school lunch lady – he gets his rocks off by being a voyeur.
From the AP
Andrews’ attorney, Marshall Grossman, confirmed Tuesday that the video posted on the Internet shows the 31-year-old reporter. He said she decided to confirm it “to put an end to rumor and speculation and to put the perpetrator and those who are complicit on notice that they act at their peril.”
Statements like this only fuel the fame grab theory. This statement from Erin Andrews lawyer says two things. We’d rather have people speculating about whether or not the video is a fame grab than speculating about whether or not she’s actually in the video. Also, we’d love to keep this story alive. So here’s a new quote so you can write a new article.
If you’ve seen the video, you’ll realize how peculiar the statements from the Erin Andrews camp are. These videos are the equivalent of watching scrambled cable porn.
From the same AP piece
Ephraim Cohen, a spokesman for the video portal Dailymotion, could not confirm the video had actually appeared on his company’s site, but said it may have been there months ago. He said a search for the name of the user who purportedly uploaded the video showed the person had opened an account in February, but had since closed it.
“As far as we can tell, the user took the account and the video down a while ago,” he said.
Nice try Ephraim, but Daily Motion has the ability to open new doors in this investigation but it chooses not to. The user opened his account in February. On Friday July 17, 2009 the user Goblazers1 who uploaded the videos to Daily Motion accepted me as a “friend” on his account. On Saturday July 18, 2009 Goblazers1 responded to my email through Daily Motion (twice), then deleted his account. He most likely visited my site and saw that I had outed him as the earliest known source of the video.
Daily Motion has Goblazers1 IP address unless he was using a proxy. If Daily Motion decides to cooperate, they are going to save people a lot of time and money, and actually give authorities a better chance at tracking down this guy.
Switching gears a bit, I used Google cache and a list of URLs I saved to research the videos and geotagging of the videos in Goblazers1 Daily Motion account. This is purely anecdotal, but when you upload a video to Daily Motion, the geotagged location of the video by default creating using the users IP address. However, the uploader has the ability to completely remove geotagging or to move it to a new location.
As you will see in the map below, Goblazers1 had videos tagged in various cities of Erin Andrews as well as other woman. Some of these women were taped in the same room as Erin Andrews, while others appear to be in a different location. Mainstream media is clueless to all of this because they are so late to the dance. They never saw the account of Goblazers1 or the videos that were uploaded to it. All they have is a 5 minute compilation that someone spliced together from the original 7 video clips.
