So Mark Madden is on the site every Monday now on the Tim Benz podcast, and I've also seen advertisements for strip clubs on the site. Maybe I'm being a prude, but that seems like scraping the bottom of the barrel to me.

If this message echoes at all, it's because I'm posting from the bottom of the barrel. Crikey.

Is it me or do not laws and regulations govern what is and is not discrimination regarding who may and who may not advertise here and there? In other words, do their lawyers say they may not reject stripper ads?

Adding 2 and 2, seems to me these guys have young male listeners, so stripper joints are naturally attracted to them to advertise, no? I'm guessing all three of them would take ad money from anyone with the possible exceptions of ISIL, the KKK and Kim Jung Un. You can spend that stripper money same as money from churches, I hear.

There are no such regulations. Media can turn down any advertising. But in this economic climate, who does?

Some "male enhancement" stuff has been sponsoring DK for months now too.

Madden, Benz, DK, and strippers. Strippers are by far the classiest part of that grouping.

I'd love to know the numbers on who actually listens to those podcasts.

the pg and city paper don't seen to have a problem with the occasional gentlemen's ads. So what if DK also takes their money?

PG had those kind of ads too. So no big deal. What I want to know is how DK plans on fixing the Steelers coverage. So far Dustin has nothing to offer. It may take him at least a few months before he gets established. In the meantime, who helps him cover the Steelers? DK is not doing enough.

It's a Penguins and Riverhounds website, all those other teams' coverage is just filler so don't get your hopes up.

But hey he gave a "great" column a few months ago saying you're all racists if you dare question Tomlin, Le'Veon, or Martavis' judgement.

Actually, what former DK Subscriber is saying about DK calling all critics of Tomlin as racists is a flat out misrepresentation. I read that article and it was clear he was referring to the coded language used to describe Tomlin and black players. The use of thugs and thug culture is selectively used a lot among a certain segment of Steelers fans to explain the empty seats (2 years ago when empty seats would be seen during primetime games and you could read the comments explaining why on different sites such as the local CBS KDKA one). Or when Bell got suspended, on some sites, people talked about thug culture being condoned by Tomlin. Bell is an idiot, but you wonder about some fans when they use the word thug.

DK in no way condoned their actions. Hell, if anything, the site did question Bell's sincerity. And they have taken shots at Tomlin in the past.

I question DK's coverage of the Steelers and think they lack the beat reporters who are able to get inside that lockerroom. But come on. let's not exaggerate.

No matter your interpretation of that column, DK ticked off a lot of subscribers with that piece because many took it to mean he was calling them racists if you dare criticize Tomlin or black players - and he was taken to task in the comments sections in a harsh manner that typically doesnt occur and he was nowhere to be found in defending himself - its a pattern that he sticks to in that he'll reply and attack back when one or two subscribers call him out but when the criticism is shared by 10 + commenters, he hides from the comments section and lets his minions defend his stance.

Oh great, football season is over so now we have to hear about hockey for six months. They need to realize Pittsburgh don't like hockey.

You do realize the Pittsburgh market has the highest TV ratings for hockey in the US, right? Just because you don't like hockey doesn't make you spokesperson for the region.
