Why MSM (KC Star) is Going Belly Up!

“People want to talk about patriotism? There is an emptiness of patriotism” — Rep. Emanuel Cleaver

Besides the often shameless and biased reporting, another probable reason for the Kansas City Star’s financial problems is their “Johnny come lately” reporting. Folks, we’ve been telling you about Emanuel Cleaver’s $200 million boondoggle since April of last year!

 A huge project envisioned for Kansas City could make this and the world a greener place, but it could also cost a lot of green, as in money.

 A feasibility study is still being refined, but a draft report indicates such a center could cost $116 million. Even if built in phases, the center would depend largely on federal money at a time when the political climate is cooling on federal spending. Read more…

    “Johnny come lately reporting” is simply another euphemism for “dead tree dinosaur media.”

    Social networks, push-button publishing and RSS media long ago changed the game, and publications like the Kansas City (red) Star are still walking down the road talking to themselves wondering what happened.

    Kansas City Star makes further staff cuts.

    PS: for your consideration:

    On the west side of Missouri, “The Pitch” publication is referred to by most intelligent people as a street rag – a progressive toilet of bile, bias and perversion. It is a tawdry tabloid fit for little more than puppy poop and lining a bird cage.

    It has no place in legitimate news reporting, almost, but not quite, like the Kansas City (red) Star.

    Just a friendly FYI.
