    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — It’s the latest chapter of the Jesse White saga. He’s the local state representative who admitted to using online aliases to bully constituents. KD Investigator Andy Sheehan broke the story, and now it’s taking a bizarre twist. White concedes he did it; used fake names to attack people on the Internet. But of the half dozen or so aliases used to post his attacks, the most disturbing one is Victoria Adams. A beautiful young woman whose fake Facebook profile said she resided in Pittsburgh, Pa. But until recently, there were only three people named Victoria Adams in...

    The most memorable moment for local talk show host Fred Honsberger involved an elderly woman named Grace, Hillary Clinton and a turkey gobble. It was around Thanksgiving, and Honsberger had decided to give away turkeys to his KDKA listeners by playing turkey-gobble sound bites between calls. When caller Grace decided to begin a tirade about how the conservative Honsberger should lay off his criticisms of then-First Lady Hillary Clinton, he inserted a gobble sound into her diatribe. After only a brief pause, she continued with her "blah, blah, blah," Honsberger said, so he played the gobble again. Her response: "I...

  • In all fairness ... (Radio Host reprimanded for being anti-Obama)

    Talk radio isn't exactly known for its lack of bias, but during yesterday's Kevin Miller show on KDKA-AM (1020), the concept of fairness appeared to have won a skirmish. In a segment that could have been either stunt or statement, KDKA executive producer P.J. Kumanchik read an announcement from CBS management addressing accusations that talk host Miller, whose show airs from noon to 3 p.m., is unfairly biased against Sen. Barack Obama's campaign. Citing a number of e-mails and phone calls from listeners criticizing Miller, Kumanchik offered Democratic presidential candidate Obama a three-hour air shift, usurping Miller's air time....

    PITTSBURGH — A newspaper reporter who said Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick would have been "better off raping a woman" than being charged with dogfighting has apologized and will no longer appear on the local sports panel TV show where he made the remark. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter Paul Zeise made the comments Sunday night on the "Sports Showdown" show on KDKA-TV, a CBS affiliate. He was disagreeing with another panelist who said NFL commissioner Roger Goodell should suspend Vick for the rest of the season because he was indicted on federal dogfighting charges July 17. "It's really a sad day...
