TheWrap Aims At Anonymous Scandal Blogger; Hits Her Roommate

Defamer's Beejoli Shah reports that The Wrap is backing off a bit from an earlier story that an ABC Sales executive is the person behind a popular "Scandal" blog. Now the publication says it's actually run by one of the exec's former roommates:

However, this afternoon, Nededog ran a new exclusive: "Shocker! Exposed Scandal Blogger Is Ex-Roommate of ABC Sales Director, Says Network." He reports that an exhaustive investigation by ABC revealed that the blogger wasn't actually Pajor, but in fact, an unnamed ex-roommate of Pajor's. He goes on to quote a statement from ABC, and then discusses FTC guidelines for bloggers. However, other than one sentence buried in the article about TheWrap being the ones to accuse Pajor just two days prior, offers no apology in the apparent backtrack.
