Robertson to buy The Virginian-Pilot?

Paybacks are, well, um, we won’t say what paybacks are.

But televangelist Pat Robertson, who has been unhappy with The Virginian-Pilot and its coverage of him and his activities, may buy the newspaper.

Norfolk-based Landmark Communications Inc. announced earlier this month that it will explore selling its assets, including The Pilot and The Weather Channel. Robertson said The Pilot would be useful in providing journalism internships for Regent University, the school he founded.

Who better to have the story than The Pilot itself?
