Pittsburgh TV Station Fires Employee Responsible for Tom Brady ‘Known Cheater’ Graphic

“The graphic that appeared Monday violated our news standards,” KDKA said. 

The higher-ups at Pittsburgh’s CBS affiliate didn’t find Monday afternoon’s graphic taking a shot at Tom Brady as funny as Patriots haters did. 

The employee responsible for the graphic is no longer employed by the station, a spokesperson told 

The chyron in question ran during KDKA’s 4 o’clock news and identified Brady, who was memorably suspended by the NFL for his role in the Deflategate scandal, as a “known cheater.”

“While fans are entitled to have personal opinions, we have a journalistic responsibility to provide unbiased reporting,” KDKA said in a statement to “The graphic that appeared Monday violated our news standards. The individual who created the graphic no longer works for KDKA-TV.”
