JOKING THE KANSAS CITY DEAD TREE MEDIA MESSAGE OF THANKS!!!



Amid the leftover coupons, wire copy and wordy features . . . The Kansas City Star offered readers a note of thanks yesterday.

The VERY BEST AND BRIGHTEST members of our KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY simply responded: "Oh, please" to this bit of self-aggrandizement that's more typical of a blog but not as much fun.



Take a look at their public service promo listing dead tree media accomplishments:

- To hold the powerful accountable and give voice to the voiceless

- To help build our community through knowledge

- To provide honest, independent verified information

- To connect readers and advertisers

- To help save time and money and make our life easier.

Never mind that reddit really does pretty much the same thing but without so much arrogance, support of nearly every tax and sponsored content.

Still, we don't begrudge Dead Tree Media their pitch to prove their usefulness . . . It's just worth reminding people that pushing around scraps of paper with an army of trucks isn't really necessary to attempt to monopolize the public discourse in this digital day and age.

You are really a hater. And, the person who said "oh yea", was?

Negative Nancy is tiring except to the most cynical.

The most cynical in this age includes everyone paying attention.

The picture was pretty though.

Yet Tony will continue to link to "the paper" for his content.

And when not linking to the Star, Tony will provide us with original content from Glazer, Alonzo, Toni Bones, Tracy Ward, Deron Black, Clay Chastain, and all his pseudo-intellectual, fact-challenged "kickass tipsters" who will get whatever they want to say in print on TKC without Tony bothering to do even one second's worth of checking to see if there is a grain of truth in any of it.

Nice shot of another kick-ass tipster leaving a "TKC EXCLUSIVE". Bring on Craig now for another free plug and overly long and boring post.

If that witch wants me to be a reader of the Star she is going to have to do way more than that slobber of words. I am as in slobber on my big ten inch.

Oh give me a break KC Star. You went downhill a long time ago. didnt they yank someone from San Fran to run the paper a few years back?

Now they filled their ranks with radicals who are out of touch with the people and only appeal to a very small minority. You know, Mary Sanchez, Yael, etc.

KC Star used to be a paper for the people. A real paper for all. I will never buy their product again.

NO newspaper delivery today (Monday) in Leawood. How is that for SERVICE???

"We will have it delivered tomorrow along with Tuesday's paper." -- Says the telephone "delivery service" response.

Only one other source can stack it higher than the Star and that is Glazer and his boring hype.
