Paul Zeise is a reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and as if his life wasn't miserable enough from that description alone, he now has issued an apology for remarks about the Michael Vick case he made on a late-night roundtable TV show. The comments that landed him in hot water:
"It's really a sad day in this country when somehow … Michael Vick would have been better off raping a woman if you look at the outcry of what happened. Had he done that, he probably would have been suspended for four games and he'd be back on the field. But because this has become a political issue, all of a sudden the commissioner has lost his stomach for it."
See, this is typical of the mainstream media. The know-it-all remarks from Monday morning dogfighters and armchair rapists are made of ignorance and arrogance. I mean, seriously. Ziese is totally clueless about the motivation for and repercussions of both rape and dogfighting.
For example, there's way more glory and money to be had in dogfighting… whereas rape is for angry loners and lacrosse players. Duh.
