Pittsburgh Post-Gazette publisher threatened to "burn the place down" in a drunken newsroom rampage





The publisher of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is accused of going on a drunken verbal rampage in its newsroom Saturday night in which witnesses say he threatened to “burn the place down” and “close the whole paper.”

John Robinson Block, the vice chairman of Post-Gazette owner Block Communications Inc., is facing a federal labor complaint over the incident. Employees described Block as “ranting like a madman” as he blasted their union and threatened staff, all while forcibly tugging along his sobbing 12-year-old daughter, according to local news outlet The Incline.


Block is a trump mini-me.

Block forced the editorial pages of the PPG and the Toledo Blade to endorse trump today --- using virtually identical language.

All right-wing media is on twitter "spiking the football" because PPG has not endorsed a Republican since 1972 (Nixon).

1. Apart from any other charges, there should be one for child abuse and endangerment.
