TKC BREAKING AND EXCLUSIVE NEWS!!! JACKSON COUNTY TRANSLATIONAL SALES TAX ADVOCATES CLAIM CH. 9 EDITORIAL SUPPORT TRUMPS DEAD TREE MEDIA!!!
The Kansas City endorsement game for the Jackson County Translational Tax is in full swing right now and here is a tidbit that TKC REPORTS EXCLUSIVELY . . . Check it:
SUPPORTERS OF THE JACKSON COUNTY TRANSLATIONAL SALES TAX TOUT A CHANNEL 9 EDITORIAL AND CLAIM IT'S MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN DEAD TREE MEDIA OPPOSITION GIVEN NEWSPAPER DECLINE!!!
Undoubtedly . . . The editorial starts out STRONG and makes some pretty bold claims:
Sarah Smith President/GM KMBC/KCWE:
"Imagine this parking lot transforming into a new medical research facility in the heart of Hospital Hill. Next, imagine a cure for your loved one's illness being discovered right here in Kansas City.
Voters in Jackson County have a unique opportunity to help determine the future of medical research. The proposed new sales tax would fund a private/public partnership that would accelerate cures and create new jobs and 20% of the revenue generated by the Institute would go back to Jackson County to provide indigent care.
The tax will be collected for only 20 years but the 20% return is indefinite. This is your chance to help determine the future of Jackson County for your children. Voters supported the stadiums and the Zoo. Now it's time to support our health future. For KMBC and KCWE I'm Sarah Smith. Vote Yes for Proposition 1 on Nov. 5th.
The architects of the Jackson County effort are simply playing a numbers game and they're banking that better numbers from television broadcasts will impact the vote.
Here is the EXCLUSIVE INSIDER STATEMENT sent our way:
Here is the KMBC endorsement IN FAVOR of the proposal. It ran 11 times over the weekend. More voters saw this editorial for, than the Star against.
Like it or not, it's hard to argue with the logic of marketing, stats and viewership data.
Now you d-bags tell me . . .
WHICH IS MORE IMPORTANT: DEAD TREE MEDIA OPPOSITION OR CH. 9 EDITORIAL SUPPORT OF THE JACKSON COUNTY TRANSLATIONAL SALES TAX?!?!
This tax fight seems to be heating up and now has not only divided factions of civic interests but also splits old school and newer media into a struggle for greater influence.
