Pittsburgh City Paper: So, what will the executive editor of the Post-Gazette say about a photo of him and Trump?

If a social media post was good enough for the brass at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to consider one of their few Black reporters biased, then what will that group say about a photo of one of their own with the president?

The Pittsburgh City Paper has the details.

The photo circulated widely on social media throughout the city, with some claiming it showed the head of Pittsburgh’s largest newspaper favoring Trump. But what didn’t circulate as widely in Pittsburgh at the time was that Keith Burris, then the Toledo Blade editorial page editor, was also on the plane with Trump and Block. Today, Burris is the Executive Editor of the Post-Gazette in addition to being the director of the opinion pages of both newspapers. 

A photo of this occasion, shared with City Paper earlier today by an anonymous source, shows Burris with his hand on Trump’s shoulder as Trump gives a thumbs-up sign.
