KDKA-TV Fires Employee over Tom Brady Cheater Graphic

Lucy!….. You got some ‘splainin’ to do!

KDKA-TV, the CBS owned and operated television station in Pittsburgh fired an employee for creating a lower third graphic that labeled Tom Brady a “Known Cheater”. The graphic was used on the air.


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


The “Deflategate” scandal occurred in 2015 where it was alleged that Brady had the ball boy deflate game balls before the 2015 AFC Championship game against the Indianapolis Colts. Brady and the Patriots won the game 45-7. New England was fined $1 million by the NFL and Brady was suspended for 4 games.
