Wahl’s Book: ESPN Paid For "Beckham Infomercial"

The steady release of excerpts from Grant Wahl’s forthcoming book “The Beckham Experiment” continues to stir interest (and no doubt pre-orders on Amazon) as more behind-the-scenes details from his tumultuous time in LA emerge.

The latest tidbit, that ESPN paid Beckham’s management company to produce a one-hour special on Beckham sounds even more crass than the previous charge that Becks was a cheapskate.

Wahl, a guy who works his butt off to develop his stories, called it “checkbook journalism,” and he’s 100% right.
