Jalen Rose Pulled Espn

ESPN pulled NBA analyst Jalen Rose off the air on Friday after it was revealed that Rose didn't tell anyone about his DUI arrest for almost three weeks, according to Michael McCarthy of USA Today.

It was reported on Tuesday that ESPN analyst Jalen Rose was arrested for driving under the influence in early March.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz emailed USA Today's Game On!, explaining that Rose and his employers are "taking this very seriously" and both parties "agreed that he will not be on our air while he addresses this situation."

On Thursday, the Poynter Institute's Kelly McBride and Regina McCombs published a story titled "Rose's concealment compromises ESPN."

The report explains that ESPN encourages its talent to "tell their bosses about potentially embarrassing personal issues that might become public."
