KDKA out in Pittsburgh is a pretty solid TV station. They win awards and do good journalism and seem to actually have a strategy and a direction.
That results in high standards for employees, who are expected to act without bias and blah blah blah, yadda yadda yadda.
Today they shit-canned somebody who earlier this week wrote “known cheater” below Tom Brady’s name on a lower third graphic.
Fast forward to the 28 second mark:
Hah! That’s pretty good, but KDKA sent this statement to Sports Illustrated:
“While fans are entitled to have personal opinions, we have a journalistic responsibility to provide unbiased reporting. The graphic that appeared Monday violated our news standards. The individual who created the graphic no longer works for KDKA-TV.”
Personally, I think the employee deserves a raise. Everybody knows Tom Brady deflated those footballs to gain a competitive advantage.
This is just another example of the mainsteam fake news media attempting to manipulate the truth and keep us in the dark.
