When CNN ditched Sports Illustrated as its in-house sports arm and instead went to new acquisition Bleacher Report last month, we were alarmed. After all, SI has decades of work attesting to its journalistic pedigree while b/r has this. We expected Bleacher Report to quickly drag CNN down to its "cesspool."

Maybe we were wrong, and CNN's the one tarnishing b/r's good name. It certainly appears that way this morning, as a Bleacher Report-branded segment ended with sports guy Carlos Diaz asking news anchor Carol Costello how many franks she could eat during a baseball game, then finding her answer a turn-on. Said To Lady Journos, you have a new entry. [CNN]
