THIS MORNING WE WANT TO SHARE HAS SOME SCIENTIFIC MARKET RESEARCH DATA REGARDING THE TKC DISCUSSION THAT HAS NOW REACHED MORE THAN 100 COMMENTS!!!
This is far from the first triple digit debate we've had here on TKC but the 100 comment debate regarding a showdown between a journalist and Chief of Police is one of the more lively discussions we've had that point out a few interesting trends.
* Clearly there is some palpable divisiveness within the KCPD that has manifested in the comments regarding The Chief's leadership and media relations. This confirms more TKC TIPSTERS regarding a morale problem among Kansas City's public employees.
* However, it's important to note that The Chief is not without ardent supporters as well who note that constant struggle between media and public officials is part of public life.
* Most seem to think that LEGENDARY KANSAS CITY JOURNALIST MICHEAL MAHONEY did a commendable job in posing tough questions to KCPD Chief Darryl Forté.
Meanwhile, Kansas City residents and media watchers are still waiting to learn more about the "No Violence Alliance" and what distinguishes this program from so many other efforts to curb local homicides that have so for proven unsuccessful.
