KDKA, Pittsburgh's local CBS affiliate, has fired the employee responsible for the "known cheater" graphic recently used on the network to describe New England quarterback Tom Brady.

“While fans are entitled to have personal opinions, we have a journalistic responsibility to provide unbiased reporting,” KDKA said

. “The graphic that appeared Monday violated our news standards. The individual who created the graphic no longer works for KDKA-TV.”
