NEWSMAN JOHN LANDSBERG MYTHBUSTS INTERNET RUMOR WITH FACTS ABOUT KANSAS CITY STAR LAYOFFS!!!
We've long noted that Kansas City newsman John Landsberg is the GOLD STANDARD when it comes to reporting about Kansas City media.
To wit . . .
JOHN LANDSBERG DESERVES CREDIT FOR BRINGING THE FACTS ABOUT KANSAS CITY STAR LAYOFFS INSTEAD OF JUST GOING WITH RUMORS FROM DISGRUNTLED AND FIRED EMPLOYEES!!!
The fabricated story about a competition between employees over who would be fired was a nice bit of Internet gossip . . . But it was nothing but fantasy.
Check Landsberg's link for the facts with supporting evidence:
Kansas City Star President and Publisher Mi-Ai Parrish has issued a strongly worded memo to employees today denying that any employees at the McClatchy-owned paper were forced to decide among themselves whether they would be laid off or not.
In the end the Kansas City Dead Tree Death Match Meme didn't even amount to good gossip but really represented nothing more than justifiably harsh feeling from people who are now on the Internet and not in print and don't know how to deal with this fact of life.
But instead of gloating on the negative, we want to give credit where it's dude.
Landsberg has facts to back up his work.
Others are just spreading gossip on the Internet . . . Something I respect but only when it's accompanied by boobie photos.
And so . . . When we want to know the score about Kansas City mainstream media . . . We check out the work of John Landsberg who is Kansas City's mainstream media referee.
