Subject: PG's Paula Ward nails it--Beltway be damned!

If Hilary broke the "glass ceiling," Paula's tweet with Mark Cuban's quote calling Trump a "jagoff" broke the "ass ceiling" that banned that word.


For those who weren't around before, this rule was mandated by David Shribman to make the PG seem stuffy and pompous. That way, it better reflects his own self-important personality, style and latent contempt for the Pittsburgh region and its idiosyncrasies. After all, they don't use such lingo around his beloved New England, especially Dartmouth.


Of course, some lowly locals might say given the current state of the P-G, it's Shribman (and his Pulitzer) who have "no place in the Post-Gazette or postgazette.com."

I don't care for "jagoff." I would not ban it but I'd not want to see it overused in any paper I ran. But Shribman's absolutism and snide condescension in that memo verified every nasty thing ever posted about him on this site. He's only here because an arrogant preppy co-owner anointed a clueless ex-DC bureau chief as Executive Editor thinking he'd bring "class" to contrast with the Trib. It did not matter the guy never ran a newsroom. His self-importance means he's well paid to look down his nose at Western Pa.'s unique culture.
