KANSAS CITY INTERNET & MAINSTREAM MEDIA BLABBERMOUTH BACKLASH!!!
Here's a Kansas City media FACT that was determined recently . . .
KANSAS CITY HATES THE D-BAG BEHIND THE "BLABBERMOUTH" WEBSITE THAT WANTED TO CHARGE TO REMOVE THE PUBLISHING AND DISSEMINATION OF PUBLIC ARREST RECORDS!!!
I wasn't really impressed with the biz model or the gimmicky incorporation of Google Maps that was seemingly a homage to 2009. The mugshot online game isn't new and probably one of the most low-rent website ploys around . . . The spin about disseminating the info seemed more like an empty threat which the dude backed off of quickly.
But the mainstream media and the public pushed back HARD yesterday.
Bottom Line chronicled the KMBZ news interview that turned into a public flogging.
Church of Lazlo enjoyed a HUGE response railing against the dude . . .
And basically the mainstream and the online world piled on the dude with a crappy biz idea . . .
THE REACTION TO BLABBERMOUTH WAS SO BAD THAT THE DUDE'S HOME ADDRESS WAS PUT ON BLAST ALONG WITH A BUNCH OF TYPICALLY NASTY ONLINE THREATS!!!
Obviously debating ethics on the Internets is useless . . . HOWEVER, this entire hot mess simply confirms TKC's contention that there is no simple or sustainable independent online publishing profit model for so many online d-bags who mistakenly believe they're clever.
