TV producer fired for graphic calling Tom Brady ‘cheater’

PITTSBURGH — A Pittsburgh TV news producer who was fired for writing a graphic calling New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady a “known cheater” says he was just trying to have a little fun.

Michael Telek tweeted Wednesday that he got fired from KDKA-TV for putting the phrase underneath Brady’s name in the Monday news segment.

He told the Pittsburgh City Paper that since most Steelers fans despise Brady, he thought he’d have a little fun with the description.

He says he understands why he was let go, but is a bit worried since he just bought a house.

His friends launched a GoFundMe page to help him out, and he says once he finds a job, he’ll donate the money to a charity in Brady’s name.

He says he actually thinks Brady is the greatest quarterback ever.

    There is some truth in his statement, of Tom Brady, first in the deflated football and now the game leading up to the Super Bowl when the referee did not call pass interference. Who knows if that referee got a big fat envelope to “massage” the outcome of that game?
