Not living in Pittsburgh for the past x years, I haven't had a front row seat to watch this transformation but wow...
Only a few years ago Dejan was put up on a pedestal for his work covering the Pens. I remember much gnashing of teeth when he was switched to the Pirates beat.
I don't know. Twitter I guess. He is always fighting with random trolls, picks fights with other reporters over quotes, he goes crazy they respond professionally, and has some sick deep need to throw tantrums and make a deal out of small stories only to use lots of !!! And all caps and keep at it for weeks. He also makes up headlines to get you to read a pointless article - very sensationalized.
