Interesting the amount of fawning and coddling by the local media of convicted rapist and accused spousal abuser, “Iron” Mike Tyson. Every one of the three local TV stations, used their anchors to tease their stories about Tyson, to which they all gave a gracious amount of airtime.
KDKA, WTAE and WPXI were all drooling over themselves to do fluff pieces about this knucklehead. Then, to top it off the Valley News couldn’t resist putting his mug on the front page with a bunch of locals, who also rolled out the red carpet. Geez, you would have thought the Pope was coming to town.
Pretty much shows how messed up things are in the media and in the country. I hope all those clowns that were exposing their kids to this guy are proud. I’m sure the kids will be, when they can look back 30 years from now and say, “we met a famous rapist.”
Isn’t the glorification of the famous a sad sad thing. I guess the local media and others were just so happy that anybody with a recognizable name would come to Pittsburgh and the A-K Valley. Maybe next we can line up a serial killer or war criminal?
