Can 'hottest sports reporter' have it both ways?
On Sept. 17, 1990, a woman named Lisa Olson was sexually harassed in the Patriots locker room, where she was working as a beat writer for the Boston Herald.
She's at the center of a controversy with the Jets. Check out photos of Ines Sainz, the self-proclaimed "hottest sports reporter in Mexico."

I’ll spare you the details, though the offenses arguably rose to a level of criminal conduct. It’s enough to cite a former Watergate prosecutor who conducted the NFL’s investigation, concluding that the events of that day left Olson “degraded and humiliated.”

Then the real harassment started. There were death threats and slashed tires. The then-owner of the Patriots called her a “*****.” It got so bad she left the country, an exile that lasted until 1998 when, I’m obliged to mention, we became colleagues at the New York Daily News.

Now, almost 20 years later to the day, there’s a new poster woman for sexual harassment in the locker room. Her name is Ines Sainz, a reporter for Azteca TV who calls herself “the hottest sports reporter in Mexico.” But unlike Olson, who went into exile, Sainz went on CNN and Joy Behar.

In other words, whatever happened didn’t hurt her career. Actually, within hours of this posting, I fully expect Sainz to announce her appearance on “Dancing with the Stars.”

Is she a victim of harassment? I don’t know. Just the same, I wonder if her cause diminishes that of women in the locker room, and all the legitimate grievances and real prejudice they face every day.

No, I’m not arguing that Sainz had it coming. What’s more, plenty of kudos are in order here — to the Jets and the NFL, for investigating this case with vigilance and no delay, and to the Association for Women in Sports Media, which demanded that Sainz be protected as one of its own. But Sainz — and the packaging of her unmistakably carnal goodies — seems part of a larger phenomenon. I don’t know how to characterize it in a politically correct fashion, so let me just ask if sports media are under a kind of siege. Call it Attack of the Bimbo Journalists.

I’ve covered enough fights, where Azteca correspondents are abundant, to marvel at my own self-restraint. How did I not beg any of them to please, please ruin my life? Then again, I think Azteca represents the future of the business. Without question, the network understands the male demographic, across all age groupings. Remember, this is the same outfit that dispatched a buxom reporter in wedding whites to “propose” to Tom Brady at the 2008 Super Bowl. The NFL had no problem credentialing her. Nor did it have any problem credentialing Sainz, who claims to have been modestly attired in jeans and a white blouse.

By now, you’ve seen the photographs. It’s safe to say that not all denim and white ensembles are created equal. That doesn’t mean she wasn’t harassed. But here are the facts, most of them from Sainz herself:

On Saturday, she went to Jets camp to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez. Apparently, players and coaches used a passing drill as an excuse to get close to her, or perhaps, to flirt. Later, in the locker room, Mexico’s hottest sports reporter found herself the object of catcalls.

He said what?! To get Clinton Portis's controversial take on the story, visit Sports by Brooks. has the quick apology.
“I am in the locker room of the Jets waiting for Mark Sanchez while trying not to look anywhere,” she tweeted, noting that she was “dying of embarrassment,” and had to “cover my ears.”

A reporter then tried to come to her aid, which, anyone who hasn’t been in a locker room should know, is an especially ballsy act. The Association for Women in Sports Media was contacted, presumably by the same reporter. Board member Joanne Gerstner immediately took the complaint to the NFL and the Jets, who have been, as she puts it, “extremely responsive.”

But for what?

She was seriously offended? I'm going to go out on a limb and say, "I seriously doubt that."

Yeah Ok - I would f--k her.

My understanding is that it was another reporter who made the accusation.

Indeed. Another reporter 'rushed in to save her'...uh huh. She said she was not offended.

There is not a single picture of this woman that I could find that wasn't smokin. I don't think she's the type to get offended about such things.

Lets see... sending women into an NFL locker room...

Trainwreck waiting to happen.

Well if she's in Mexican media, and she's a woman, that means basically her job is to smile, and walk around with her T**s hanging out. No, you cant have it both ways. She's a porn star with a mic.

I'll care what happens to her, when they let men in a women's locker room.
