The Post-Gazette and KDKA-TV (2) are apologizing for remarks made by one of the newspaper’s sportswriters on a talk show.

Paul Zeise, who said suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick “would have been better off raping a woman” than being accused of running dogfights, will not be invited to appear on KDKA’s “Sunday Showdown” again, says the station’s general manager, Chris Pike.

In a prepared statement, the P-G said that Zeise’s comments “do not represent” the views of the newspaper, while Zeise apologized for using “a poor choice of analogies” to “characterize a professional athlete’s legal situation.” KDKA also apologized during yesterday’s 6 p.m. and 11 p.m. newscasts.
