“The bosses were not laughing,” writes sportswriter Mark W. Sanchez in the New York Post.

The story continues, “The latest light-hearted (to anyone outside Boston, at least) shot at Tom Brady came from Pittsburgh CBS affiliate KDKA on Monday, which did not describe the 41-year-old on its chyron as ‘Patriots quarterback’ or ‘Five-time Super Bowl champion’ or even ‘QB who is not Ben Roethlisberger.’

“No, the TV network in Steelers town went with ‘Known Cheater.’

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